                       EMBL-EBI SYMPOSIUM

              Genome Based Gene Structure Determination
                        
                        1-2 June 2000

         Second Call for registration and poster abstracts.

Contact : genepred2000 at ebi.ac.uk

The  symposium focuses on the latest developments in the area of
annotation of genes in large genomes.  Topics covered are (i) genome
based 
methodologies of identifying genes and other gene structural elements; 
(ii) first-hand experiences from annotating large genomes;
and (iii) bioinformatics aspects of large-scale genome annotation 
pipelines.
Abstracts for poster presentation covering any of the above issues are
invited.

The journal Briefings in Bioinformatics 
http://www.henrystewart.com/journals/BiB 
acts as the supporting publication for the symposium. The proceedings of 
the symposium will be covered in a special issue in this journal.

The invited speakers include
