Vth INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON TRANSGENESIS
AND GENOMICS OF INVERTEBRATE ORGANISMS

Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific Grove, California, June 15th - 19th, 2008


Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for your interest in attending the 5th International 
Workshop on Insect Transgenesis and Genomics to be held at Asilomar, 
Pacific Grove, California from June 15-19, 2008.  The focus of the 
workshop is on the genomics and functional genomics of insects and 
other invertebrates, and the use of genetic transformation methods 
for genomics analysis and applications.  The major topics to be 
discussed will be:

1. Genomics
2. Functional genomics
3. Transposition and recombination systems
4. Genetic tools (including analysis systems) and markers
5. Practical applications for transgenic strains
6. Risks and concerns of transgenic release

Registration is now open at the following web site: 
https://webpay.ucr.edu/webpay/home
Further information on the conference site can be found at:

Submission of fees will be required by May 1st, but if this is a
