   Prof. Walter Fitch (Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology,
                University of California at Irvine) and
   Dr Nick Goldman (Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge)

A one-day meeting has been arranged to coincide with the conclusion of
the Newton Institute programme on Biomolecular Function and Evolution in
the Context of the Genome Project (July - December 1998).  This extended
research programme has comprised a unique inter-disciplinary
collaboration between mathematics and topics in molecular evolution,
structure and function.  The closing meeting on Friday 18 December 1998
will consist of four speakers giving their views on the future of the
molecular biological sciences and the role that mathematics has to play
in that future.


2.00 - 3.00     Prof. Sir Tom Blundell FRS (Head of Department,
                   Biochemistry, University of Cambridge)
                ``Projections and Extrapolations in Protein Space''

3.00 - 3.30     Dr Arthur Lesk (Department of Haematology, University of
                ``The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in
                   Molecular Biology''

3.30 - 4.00     Tea

4.00 - 5.00     Prof. Sydney Brenner FRS (President and Director of
                   Science, Molecular Sciences Institute, Berkeley, USA)
