Mercurio is a new mailing list devoted to distribution of messages
related to events (seminars, workshops, conferences, etc...) that
will be held at the Congress Center of the Advanced Biotechnology
Center of Genoa (Italy).
Mercurio is in Italian, and is mainly of interest to Italian people,
but international events are as well announced and can be of interest
to other researchers.
The Congress Center also delivers some of the events via RealAudio.
These events can then be attended from abroad. Test your link with

Workshops on Complete cDNA Sequencing
In the fall of 1996, several research teams worldwide announced plans for complete
sequencing of cDNAs, the sturdy representatives of the cell's fragile messenger RNAs
(mRNAs) for gene expression.
The following spring, a series of international cDNA workshops began. Building on the
Integrated Molecular Analysis of Genome Expression (I.M.A.G.E.) consortium, the workshops'
objectives are to extend the infrastructure I.M.A.G.E. has provided since 1994 to the
challenges of complete cDNA sequencing. Reports from the workshops are listed below.
- WCCS I: May 19, 1997,
- WCCS II: September 15, 1997,
Hilton Head, SC
- WCCS III: May, 1998.

Charles Boulakia when asked why EMJL was chosen replied, "I was very impressed
by both the quantity and the quality of the information on your site. Keep up the good
EMJL has been a broad initiative of several departments at McGill
University, including: the Department of Medicine, Division of Experimental Medicine;
the Faculty of Medicine; and Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research. Job vacancies are
listed for positions ranging from chair and faculty positions to openings for Ph.D.
candidates and post doctoral studies. As well, extensive links to fellowship information
and other career resources are provided.
Originally designed to aid both McGill faculty and students in filling and finding job
vacancies, EMJL has grown into an internationally known web site which, since inception,
has received almost half a million visits and successfully filled over 150 job vacancies.
Jobs are now listed for positions across North America, Europe and Asia.
The Experimental Medicine Job Listing has also been recognized by the National Institutes
of Health and is currently the official Job Listing of the Canadian Society of Biochemistry,
Molecular and Cellular Biologists.
