To whom it may concern:
i would like to announce a satellite conference to ISMB 2007 in Vienna.
The satellite meeting is about computational (and experimental) analysis
of pre-mRNA alternative splicing, including related probelms in RNA
processesing. This year the number of invited speakers is exceptionally
large and the meeting will be held together with EURASNET, a European
network of excellence devoted to the study of alternative splicing.
Thanks for having it posted.

About the Workshop
The organizers of AS-SIG would like to invite you to participate in the 4th Special Interest Group
meeting on Alternative Splicing (AS-SIG), on July 19-20, 2007 at Vienna, Austria. This workshop
is scheduled immediately before ISMB/ECCB2007 July 21-25 2007, our co-sponsor, and is
jointly organized and co-sponsored by EURASNET, the new European Commission funded Network
of Excellence (NoE). AS-SIG 2007 follows on from initial and subsequent successful Alternative
Splicing SIG meetings held at the Pacific Symposium of Biocomputing, 2004 and the ISMB in 2005
and 2006, respectively.
1, Experimental and bioinformatics methodologies for alternative splicing
Experimental methods, AS information and databases, Algorithms and genome analyses.
2, Biology of regulatory mechanisms of alternative splicing
Regulatory mechanisms of splicing, Biological function.
3, Aberrant splicing, human disease, and concepts for medical treatment
Disease biomarkers, Medical applications.
