  The G.O.T. Summit - Microarrays in Medicine
  April 10-13, 2007 | Boston, MA
  http://www.GOTSummit.com

  Top scientists, physicians and technology experts come together
  to discuss, explain and exploit the enormous opportunities
  microarray based technologies have to offer. Key topics such as
  quality control, expression arrays and pharmacokinetics will
  be addressed as well as new developments in the field, such as
  microRNA arrays, DNA methylation and their advantages and challenges.
  Poster sessions, workshops and roundtable discussions give plenty of
  opportunities to brainstorm and network with your colleagues in the field.
