Genetics 100 Years On
John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK, 9-11 September, 2009 [Only registered users see links. ]
To help celebrate 100 years of genetics at John Innes, join us for a very special symposium. Paul Nurse will open with the Bateson Lecture and Sydney Brenner will open the main Conference proceedings with "Genetics 100 Years On". Sandwiched in between will be reflections on areas of human interest that have been transformed by a genetic approach, examining where they are now, and where they might be in the next 100 years. Come and listen to David Stern, Stewart Cole, Jonathan Hodgkin, John Doebley, Walter Bodmer, Linda Partridge, Michael Stratton, Jane Rogers, Chris Tyler-Smith, Leena Peltonen-Palotie, Rico Coen, Eric Wieschaus, Rich Losick, Mark Patshne, Daniel St Johnson, David Baulcombe and Caroline Dean.
If you are interested in the history of genetics there is a one day meeting immediately preceding the symposium [Only registered users see links. ], and if you have ever worked at JI there is an Alumni Day following the symposium where you can meet up with old friends.

We would be very grateful if you could please forward to all your colleagues - thank you.
