The symposium focuses on the latest developments in the area of
annotation of genes in large genomes.  Topics covered are (i) genome based 
methodologies of identifying genes and other gene structural elements; 
(ii) first-hand experiences from annotating large genomes;
and (iii) bioinformatics aspects of large-scale genome annotation 
Abstracts for poster presentation covering any of the above issues are
