Cold Spring Harbor Meeting, Cold Spring Harbor, New York
May 8 - 12, 2007
We are pleased to host the 20th annual meeting on genome science, now named The Biology of Genomes, which will begin at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, May 8, 2007 and run through lunch on Saturday, May 12.
The 2007 meeting will address DNA sequence variation and its role in molecular evolution, population genetics and complex diseases, comparative genomics, large-scale studies of gene and protein expression, and genomic approaches to ecological systems. Both technologies and applications will be emphasized. In addition there will be a special session on the ethical, legal and social implications of genome research.
Abstracts should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs.
We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs.
