Large Insert DNA Libraries and Their Applications Workshop
- Town and Country

Genomics has ushered forth a new era in biological research. "Changes that will have effects comparable to those of the Industrial Revolution and the Computer-based Revolution are now beginning. The next great era, a genomics revolution, is in an early phase" (Science Vol. 279, 27 March 1998, p2019). A significant feature of those advances continues to be large-insert libraries.
In this workshop, we shall strive  to share technologies and knowledge on large-insert DNA library development;  to highlight research projects involving library applications, and  to discuss topics in genomics research that seem highly relevant to future applications.
Large-insert DNA libraries (e.g., BACs, PACs and PBCs) are both a resource and tools for genomics research. The ease with which large-insert libraries are organized, analyzed, and interfaced with linkage maps, functional genomic resources and chromatin contributes to their impact on genomics research of plants and animals as well as microbes. Advances and ideas in the Workshop will involve structural genomics, but the impact of large-insert libraries is far more extensive, and extends to functional and evolutionary genomics, bio-informatics and many other fields. To facilitate the exchanges of ideas and techniques in the area, we divide the Workshop into two sections:
