Just got this notice from the MGI mailing list:
The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Library of Medicine announces a two-day scientific meeting to celebrate the first 25 years of service by GenBank, the NIH nucleotide sequence database. We invite you to attend. The meeting will be held on April 7-8, 2008 in the Natcher Auditorium on the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD. Among the distinguished list of speakers are Rich Roberts, Sydney Brenner, Francis Collins, and Craig Venter.
Although registration is free, seating is limited. Early registration is recommended at: http://www.tech-res.com/GenBank25/
Looks very cool. Lots of people who have had impact on the work we do, and will continue to have impact.
