Dear Colleagues,

Enclosed you will find the program and directions for the upcoming
Mid-Atlantic Regional zebrafish meeting,  August 7, 1998. We strongly
encourage all participants to do an informal poster presentation (we'll
provide paper and markers) as a way to share ideas and get input (you
can also bring posters from the zebrafish meeting too!).

We need to know as soon as possible 1., exactly who (exact names!) is
coming to the meeting from your labs/Institutions and 2. how many folks
will be bringing or making posters. Also note that we are receiving some
funds from Zeiss (who will be demonstrating some scopes for us and
providing helpful information specific to zebrafish imaging) and from
the Center of Marine Biotechnology, University of Maryland Biotechnology
Institute. We greatly appreciate their support!

 See you at the harbor!! Jim and Marnie
