The 24th Annual West Coast Chromatin and Chromosomes Meeting
12-15 December 2002.
Asilomar Conference Center, Pacific Grove, California.
This international meeting continues to provide a unique forum for scientists at all levels to freely exchange exciting ideas and results. The organisers especially try to
foster the development of young scientists in training by encouraging them to speak at the meeting. Depending on the schedule, talks generally run for 10-15 minutes with 5 minutes for questions. The meeting is relatively informal, with afternoons free for conversation or sightseeing, and presentations held morning and evening. It is expected that all who wish to speak will be accommodated and all participants - graduate students and post-doctoral fellows in particular - are encouraged to volunteer papers.
The meeting is sponsored by Sangamo Biosciences and the journal Biochemistry and Cell Biology.
Meeting abstracts and selected minireviews will be published in Biochemistry and Cell Biology http://bcb.nrc.ca. All authors should provide an abstract (about 200 words) of his or her talk at the time of the meeting. Dr. Jim Davie, editor of the journal, has requested that participants who would like to write a minireview (about 5 journal pages, to be published together with abstracts in a special edition of the journal) should submit a brief description of the proposed topic, along with contact information, directly to him davie@cc.UManitoba.CA.
Note that the American Society for Cell Biology meets from 14-18 December in San Francisco (about a two-hour drive from Pacific Grove).
