Genome Technology Conference and Events Calendar: Feb 14, 2005

Following is a list of conferences and other events scheduled to take place over the next two weeks. For a complete list of events, read Genome Technology, a GenomeWeb News sister publication.

Feb.14 ABSTRACT DEADLINE. Late-breaking research abstracts due today for this year's American Association for Cancer Research meeting, to be held starting April 16 in Anaheim, Calif.


Feb.16 ABSTRACT DEADLINE. Due date for abstracts for Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory's Biology of Genomes meeting. Entries "should contain only new and unpublished material" and will only be accepted through electronic submission.


Feb.23 GRANT DEADLINE. Grant proposals due at 4:00 pm to the National Center of Environmental Research at the US Environmental Protection Agency for a solicitation entitled, "Early Indicators of Environmentally Induced Disease." EPA says that it is particularly looking for programs that will develop methods and tools useful in predicting or diagnosing such disease effects - specifically developing a series of biomarkers useful for long-term studies.


Feb.24 SEMINAR. NHGRI's biweekly seminar series, sponsored by its intramural research division, is open to all NIH employees and to the public. Leslie Loew, director of the Center for Biomedical Imaging Technology at the University of Connecticut Health Center, will speak. Seminars are held at the main conference room of Building 50 from 11:00 am to noon.
