Come to the Genetics Congress after the Worm Meeting

Melbourne, Australia is just one flight from Los Angeles.  The 
International C. elegans Meeting in Los Angeles (June 29 - July 3) is 
immediately followed by the International Congress of Genetics to be 
held in Melbourne, Australia.  Held just once every five years, the 
2003 Congress is being organized around the theme Genomes - The 
Linkage to Life.  280 elite,invited international speakers (including 
8 Nobel Laureates) will contribute to symposia covering all aspects 
of genetics - genomics, cell and developmental genetics, 
neurogenetics and evolutionary genetics.  Prominent worm biologists 
including Sydney Brenner, Bob Horvitz, John Sulston and David 
Haussler are among the speakers.  The Congress will also celebrate 
the fiftieth anniversary of the discovery of the structure of DNA. 
James D. Watson will be joined by a host of luminaries who made 
seminal contributions to our understanding of basic molecular 
processes.  For more details on the Congress see 
www.geneticscongress2003.com  The Abstract deadline is March 5 and 
the 'early bird registration' period ends on March 6. Why not combine 
to Congress with the fabulous 2003 Worm Meeting?
