As part of the new "EMBO World Program", a workshop entitled 
"Fish as Model Organisms in the Genomic Era" will be held in 
Singapore, from October 24th to the 26th, 2001. The aim of this 
workshop is to introduce the zebrafish community to genome-
based approaches currently being used in other systems, and to 
stimulate development of techniques that will make the fish an even 
better experimental model, especially once more genome 
sequence data becomes available. Accordingly, as well as talks on 
various aspects of research using zebrafish, medaka and pufferfish, 
the workshop will feature speakers working with the other major 
animal model systems: Xenopus, Drosophila, chick, mouse and C.
