The preparation for the annual ABRF meeting in Portland, February 28–March 2, 2004 are nearing completion. Jack Shively and Stan Nelson have worked very hard to organize our ninth international meeting. Highlight of the program include plenary lectures by Bob Waterson, Washington University, Brian Chait, Rockefeller University and David Cox, Perlegen Sciences. There will be number of scientific sessions on a wide variety of topics such as real time PCR in cancer, structural proteomis and genomic computational methods.

In addition to the plenary lectures, the regular scientific sessions, Research Group presentations, roundtables, and tutorials we will present the ABRF Award to Edwin M. Southern, University of Oxford. The annual ABRF award is sponsored by Agilent Technologies. Ed Southern is being recognized for his outstanding accomplishments in the field of nucleic acid hybridization over the past 25 years that have ultimately led to the fluorescent detection of hybridized RNA or DNA in a high density format. This process has proved key in the development of the rapidly expanding field of gene expression analysis.

The ABRF 2004 meeting will be held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. Full registration information can be obtained at the ABRF website. This year again, preceding the ABRF meeting on February 27, The Education Committee of ABRF is offering a Satellite Meeting tutorial, “A Field Guide to NCBI Resources”
