3rd International Meeting on
SINGLE NUCLEOTIDE POLYMORPHISM
AND COMPLEX GENOME ANALYSIS
DATES: 8th ?11th September 2000
PLACE: Taos, New Mexico, USA
Web Site: http://snp2000.cgr.ki.se/
This international meeting will focus upon the evolving possibilities
for exploiting single-nucleotide polymorphisms in the study of complex
genomes. Aspects to be covered will span basic methodology issues,
applications, population genetics, bio-informatics, and ethical
dimensions. Reports of last years meeting can be found in Science (1998,
281:1787-9), Nature Genetics (1998, 20:217-8), and European Journal
Human Genetics (1999, 7:98-101; 2000, 8:154-156).
Organizers: Anthony Brookes, Pui-Yan Kwok, Ulf Landegren, Peter Oefner,
Venue: Sagebrush Inn, Taos, New Mexico. A venue with Southwestern charm,
located 1.5 hours north of Santa Fe. Outdoor pool and two hot tubs, a
public tavern on site, facilities for tennis, golf, fishing, hiking,
