 LABORATORY IN NORTHERN GREECE SEEKING COLLABORATION
 FOR THE 4TH FRAMEWORK PROGRAMME IN DROSOPHILA/INSECT
 GENOME SEQUENCING/EVOLUTION/DEVELOPMENT
 
 A group in the Department of Genetics & Molecular Biology, in the Faculty
 of Biology, School of Sciences, Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki,
 is seeking collaboration with european groups in an already existing
 network for the Fourth Framework Programme applications, coming up soon.
 We would be interested in joining a network applying for Insect, and more
 particularly Drosophila, genome analysis, and study of evolution and
 development. Our model organism is the species Drosophila auraria, a
 species of the montium subgroup of the melanogaster species group, as 
 well as other montium species occupying the montium geographical 
 distribution. We realize that there is only very little time left,
 but we are willing to contribute in the proposal as well as in the
 diversification of the network, both from a scientific and geographical
 viewpoint. Please let us know whether there is any interest, and we
 will come back to you immediately.
