Dear Gene Ontology Colleague,

I want to alert you to what we think will be an amazing genetics  

The Model Organisms to Human Biology – Cancer Genetics Conference  
sponsored by the Genetics Society of America
will be held in Washington, D.C. from June 17 – 21, 2012.

To make sure your work is included in this unique event, please submit  
your abstract by April 2, 2012.
This highly interactive meeting will bring together investigators who  
study cancer-relevant problems in model organisms, with those who  
study human cancer, and provide opportunities for investigators to  
communicate with each other, exchange ideas, and forge new  

Each of the 10 scientific sessions will include two talks by invited  
speakers--one with a model organism focus, the other with a focus on  
cancer—and four talks chosen from the submitted abstracts.

Forty talks will be chosen from submitted abstracts.  Poster sessions  
will provide extended time for a high degree of interaction among all  
the meeting participants.

Keynote speakers include Bert Vogelstein, Eric Lander, and Angelika  

The meeting will also include a modENCODE symposium chaired by the  
Director of NHGRI, Eric Green and a presentation by the newly named  
Director of NIGMS, Chris Kaiser.

Please visit to check out the full agenda and see  
the list of invited speakers.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Paul Sternberg (on behalf of my co-chair Phil Hieter)
