Abstracts are welcome for consideration as poster and platform presentations and should contain new and unpublished material. Status of abstracts (talk versus poster) will be posted on our Web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

We are eager to have as many young scientists as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We will be applying for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Please apply in writing to Maureen Morrow stating your need for financial support. Preference will be given to those submitting abstracts.

We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in November.
