We shall organize a one-day symposium on the

Application of cDNA Microarrays in Evolutionary Biology

to be held on Saturday 10th November 2001 at the Zoological Institute
of the University of Bern.

The symposium is organized jointly by the French CNRS GDR 1928 and the
Computational and Molecular Population Genetics (CMPG) lab of the
Zoological Institute of the University of Bern.

Final remarks and global discussion

Interested people are invited to register on our web site
(http://www.cmpg.unibe.ch/events/microarray). However, in order to
promote possible exchanges and discussions, we shall limit the number
of attendants to about 30 non-GDR members.

Please note that a fee of 50 CHF (approximately 30 US$) will be
charged per attendant, which includes the lunch meal taken in the
vicinity of the Symposium.
