10:30 ---  Exhaustive Search of Patterns in Bacterial Genomes ---C.H. Ting
     I am doing exhaustive searches for 20 base repeated patterns in 6 model bacteria with genomes ranging from 112K to 4.6M bp. I call these repeated patterns pearls. I like to identify clusters of consecutive pearls, which I call necklaces. I hope that the necklaces are associated with microRNAs which control all cell functions.

CLEAN UP AND ADJOURN

===========

     We try to stick to the schedule.  Remember that schedule slip is sometimes unavoidable.  Sometimes somebody runs a little long or short.  We've had speakers who just didn't show up.  

     Once in a while we shuffle things around, for whatever reason. 

      If you're desperate to see a particular thing at a particular time please mention it and we'll try to accommodate you. 

_______________________________________________

     The schedule above may be reformatted or line-justified but please transmit it verbatim and in its entirety or not at all.  A link to this page is preferred.
_______________________________________________

     No Newsgroup posts or other media distribution please!  Contact me and we'll discuss it BEFORE you proceed.
