format of the meeting will include eight oral sessions and two
poster sessions. Each oral session will include invited speakers
and speakers selected from submitted abstracts. For this reason,
abstracts from accomplished junior and senior investigators are
warmly invited. As usual at Cold Spring Harbor meetings, abstracts
of both poster and platform sessions will be published in an abstract
book. The abstracts should focus on new and unpublished data.
The organizers will select abstracts for oral or poster presentations.
The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web
site (below) as soon as decisions have been made. We have applied
for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate
students and postdocs.
We hope to see you at Cold Spring Harbor in July.
