ANNOUNCEMENT: "FOGS - Forum On Genomics and Sequence analysis"
WHY? To provide an informal, quarterly forum where computer
scientists and biologists working on genomic sequence analysis
software and databases in the San Francisco Bay Area can meet
to discuss and exchange ideas.
WHEN? Second meeting May 18, 1994 (Wednesday) 6:30PM to 9:00PM
WHERE? Genentech, South San Francisco.
WHO? Anyone who is working on sequence analysis software and/or
database development. Hopefully there will be at least one
person from each of the academic and commercial organizations
(e.g., Genentech, Stanford, LBL, LLNL, UC, etc.). FOGS is
envisioned to be a relatively small and focused group,
however the meetings will be open to anyone.
WHAT? 1. Pizza dinner provided by Genentech during a
Poster session. Roughly from 6:30 - 8:00PM.
2. Two presentations. From 8:00 - 9:00PM.

Dan Gusfield, UC Davis
"Some New Directions in Sequence Analysis."
At this time there have been 10 people that stated they will be
presenting a poster. Anyone is welcome to present a poster, however
please let me know so we can have sufficient poster boards available.
If you plan to attend FOGS #2 please RSVP to
cherry at genome.stanford.edu. This will allow us to have plenty of pizza
and beverages available.
DIRECTIONS TO GENENTECH. Genentech is off US 101 in South San
Francisco, this is north of the San Francisco Airport.
