The National Bioinformatics and Genome Resource Core at 
The Weizmann Institute of Science cordially invites you to
      participate in a demonstration and discussion of


  *               The Genome Database (GDB)                
  *                 on the World Wide Web                  
  *      An international collaboration in support of      
  *               the Human Genome Project                 
  *      Hosted by Johns Hopkins University School of      
  *           Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland USA            

       that will be given by GDB developers and curators
     on June 26 between 9:00 - 12:00 at Ebner Auditorium
         The Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot.

The Genome Database (GDB) stores and curates genomic 
mapping data submitted by researchers worldwide and 
provides this information electronically to the scientific 
community. With the release of Version 6.0, GDB becomes 
the first database of its kind to allow online public 
curation and third party annotation.

An official National Node of the Genome Database World 
Wide Web Server is maintained at the Weizmann Institute of 
Science Bioinformatics Unit, thus enabling israeli users 
to locally interact with the database in a rapid and 
efficient way.

The open day will provide an opportunity for users of the 
Genome Database to directly ask GDB developers and 
curators about data submission and query.

The homepage location of the Genome Database on the World 
Wide Web is:
