Dear all,

Please note that during the PAG Conference in San Diego (USA), we 
will be having a new workshop entitled "Genomics-Assisted Breeding" 
on Monday, 16 January, 2006 from 4:40 pm - 6:50 pm in Sunset Room. 
You are cordially invited to participate in the workshop. I am sure 
that we will be having fruitful discussions on the strategies and 
applications of genomics research in practical breeding. The details 
on the workshop can be found at 
http://www.intl-pag.org/14/14-gen-breeding.html and the programme is 
pasted below.
In view of above, I request you to mark your calendar and book the 
slot for attending the workshop.
Looking forward to see you in PAG and Genomics Assited Breeding workshop.
With kind regards,
Rajeev
