                        10th Annual Meeting on

      MATHEMATICAL AND STATISTICAL ASPECTS OF MOLECULAR BIOLOGY

     Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge

            Tuesday 4th April -- Wednesday 5th April, 2000

                  Scientific Organiser: Nick Goldman
          (Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge)

The 10th annual meeting on Mathematical and Statistical Aspects of
Molecular Biology will be held at the Isaac Newton Institute for the
Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, on Tuesday 4th April and Wednesday
5th April, 2000.  The meeting aims to bring together mathematicians,
statisticians, biologists and computer scientists who have common
research interests in the analysis of molecular biological data.

Participants in the 1998 Newton Institute programme 'Biomolecular
Function and Evolution in the Context of the Genome Project' are
particularly encouraged to attend and to take this opportunity to
present work in progress and discuss the latest issues.

The meeting will follow its familiar format, with 12-15 approximately
half-hour talks selected from participants' applications.  These will
run from early afternoon on 4th April until afternoon tea on 5th
April, with ample opportunities provided for discussion.  The cost of
attendance at the meeting will be UKP 70 (full residential) or UKP 45
(without accommodation).  Thanks to the generosity of the Newton
Institute, in association with its programme 'Biomolecular Function
and Evolution in the Context of the Genome Project', a number of
grants will be available to support junior scientists (see attached
application form).

If you would like to attend the meeting, or simply receive further
information, it is VITAL that you complete the attached form and
return it before 17 December 1999.  Further information will only be
sent to REGISTERED applicants.  Completed forms should be sent
(preferably by e-mail) to:

**Grants can only be awarded in accordance with the Newton Institute's
policy of benefit to the UK mathematical community.  Our priority will
be to support several UK-based post-graduate students in this way.
Only in exceptional circumstances will we be able to support
non-UK-based students.  Please note that eligibility for a grant does
not depend on the presentation of a talk.  If funds allow, we may also
be able to assist UK- or non-UK-based scientists at and above the
level of post-doctoral researchers, if their attendance depends on
this support.  No funds are available to support travel costs.
