Xine Volume 6 - supplement 2, July 2006

Welcome to Xine, the source for Xenopus news and information. Here's what's happening...

There is still time to register and send an abstract for the upcoming 11th International Xenopus meeting...

Dear All,

About 250 people have already registered for the 11th International Xenopus Conference in Japan. However, because a certain number of hotel rooms are still available, the organizing committee decided to extend the abstract deadline from July 10th to 14th. Please register and submit an abstract
before 5 pm on the 14th (Japan Standard Time).

The organizing committee

Makoto Asashima, Masanori Taira, Naoto Ueno

The final draft of the Xenopus genomics white paper is now complete. For your convenience, I
have attached it to this message. Copies will be posted on Xenbase and the Xine home page.
