Dear Colleague:

You are invited to attend the Plant & Animal Genome XVII Conference
(PAG-XVII), January 10-14, 2009 taking place at the Town & Country
Convention Center in San Diego, California.  This is a call for
abstracts and pre-registration.

Everyone who submits an abstract is required to pay the registration
fee prior to the meeting to be included in the Final Abstract Guide
and posted on the website.  You must be registered by December 1, or
your abstract will NOT be printed or posted on the website.  Please
update us if you cannot attend so we may free up poster space in the
Grand Exhibit Hall where exhibits and coffee breaks are just steps
from the Atlas Foyer.

Don't forget to check out the Travel Grant Applications; the deadlines
are closing soon.

The meeting will again offer the satellite sessions and workshops as
presented in earlier conferences.  A couple of new workshops this time
are "Genomics of Plant Disease Resistance" and "Recombination".  There
will be over 100 technical, industry, and computer training workshops.
The meeting draft for PAG-XVII and abstracts from PG-I through PAG-XVI
are available on the PAG website at: http://intl-pag.org/

We are requesting that all abstracts be submitted electronically.
Point your browser to the address below and click on the "Abstracts
Submission" link when ready to submit your abstract at:

Due to severe delays in getting VISAs to enter the US, we recommend
that you plan ahead and begin the process now.  DO NOT WAIT!  See
the information link at the web site as updates are provided.

All researchers presenting posters must pre-register for the meeting to
have their abstract printed in the final meeting program.  The abstract
