GeneGo’s User Group Meetings - Register today!

28-29 April 2009 , Heidelberg, Germany - EMBL

RSVP today to reserve your seat…

The User Group Meeting is free of charge and we will be having excellent presentations from GeneGo users showing how they apply MetaCore and MetaDrug to their projects.  We will then follow this with roundtable feedback discussions.  We will share information we have from the US user group meeting and follow this with a training course to introduce everyone to MetaCore and show some “tricks of the trade”.  Please take a look at the agenda below.

We have limited space for this meeting so please reserve a seat today by emailing erin from genego.com or go to our web site for more details: http://www.genego.com/ugm.php
