Dear Colleague:

You are cordially invited to participate in a new meeting on
Physiological genomics & Rat Models, which will be held at
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The meeting will begin with dinner and the
first session on the evening of Thursday, December 9, and will conclude with
lunch on Sunday, December 12, 1999. We are looking forward to a broad-based
meeting, and abstracts are welcomed on all scientific topics related to rat
genetics, genomics and physiology.

The format of the meeting will include six oral sessions consisting of invited
and short talks, limited to approximately 15 minutes, principally on
unpublished work. Oral presentations will be selected by the organizers from
the submitted abstracts. The other submitted abstracts will be presented in
poster session(s).

As is usual at Cold Spring Harbor Meetings, all abstracts of both poster and
platform sessions will be published in an abstract book given to all the

Abstract deadline: October 13, 1999
