You are cordially invited to participate in the fifth meeting on Rat Genomics & Models, which will be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The meeting will begin with dinner and the first session on the evening of Thursday, December 6, and will conclude with lunch on Sunday, December 9, 2007. We are looking forward to a broad-based meeting, and abstracts are welcomed on all scientific topics related to rat genetics, genomics and physiology.

The format of the meeting will include six oral sessions consisting of invited and short talks, limited to approximately 15 minutes, principally on unpublished work. Oral presentations will be selected by the organizers from the submitted abstracts. The other submitted abstracts will be presented in poster session(s). As is usual at Cold Spring Harbor meetings, all abstracts of both poster and platform sessions will be published in an abstract book given to all the participants.

Keynote Speakers:
Richard Gibbs, Baylor College of Medicine
New Initiatives in Rat Genomics

Allen Cowley, Jr. Medical College of Wisconsin
Integration of Rat Genetics and Physiology

Ewan Birney, Ensembl Project, European Bioinformatics Institute
Enhanced Tools for Comparative Genetics/Genomics Research

Topics, Chairs & Speakers

Jonathan Flint, Thomas Olsson

Cardiovascular Diseases
Anna Dominiczak, Norbert Hübner

Metabolism and Inflammation
Hella Markholst, Rikard Holmdahl

Tumor Biology
Jim Shull, Toshikazu Ushijima

Howard J. Jacob, Roland Wolf

Abstracts should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. Status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Apply in writing to stating need for financial support - preference is given to those submitting abstracts.

We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor in December.
