The 15th Annual meeting of 'Mathematical and Statistical Aspects of
Molecular Biology' will take place at Rothamsted Research, Harpenden on
21 and 22 March 2005.

The conference web site can be found at

Bioinformatics and statistical genetics, twin themes of the long-running
series of annual MASAMB meetings (see the archive at
http://www.ebi.ac.uk/goldman-srv/masamb), have gained huge impetus
from large-scale genome sequencing projects and development of
high-throughput biological assay systems, including gene-expression
microarrays. These immense data resources, and the underlying
complexities of molecular and cell biology, provide exciting research
opportunitities for numerate scientists.

With typically around 60-80 participants from mathematics, statistics,
computer science, bioinformatics, biology and related fields, the MASAMB
meetings provide an intimate setting for exchange of ideas in
methodological and applied research. Research students and scientists
newly entering the field of genomic research are particularly welcome.

TALKS on research relevant to the workshop are invited. The meeting will
contain approximately 12 half-hour talks selected from participants'
submissions. Abstracts must be submitted using the on-line system at the
MASAMB-2005 web site (see above). Submitted abstracts will be reviewed
by the organising committee and selected speakers will be informed by
20th January. Speakers will be asked to make their presentation
available in electronic form for inclusion on this website after the
meeting (pdf or Powerpoint format).

POSTERS (portrait format, maximum depth 120 cm) on research relevant to
the workshop are invited for the poster sessions to be held on both
days. To submit a poster, send an abstract using the MASAMB-2005 web
based abstract submission. Accepted abstracts will be displayed on the
web site. Following the meeting, posters may be published on this web
site (pdf format required)

REGISTRATION costs £90 (before January 20th) which includes lunch on
both days and the conference dinner. The cost for full-time students is
£60. Late registrations, after 20th January (if places are available)
will cost £110. Registration must be made using throough the MASAMB-2005
web system (see address above). The evening meal will take place at

ACCOMMODATION may be requested through the workshop website at the
designated conference hotel (Hertfordshire Moat House, Markyate,
offering swimming pool and gymnasium) at a preferential conference rate
of £80. Hertfordshire Moat House bookings not made through the
conference website (which generates the booking form when you register)
will have to pay standard hotel rates. Hotels in the Harpenden area tend
to get fully booked. Please ensure that you arrange accomodation at an
early date.

please post this information where others in your department will see it
and tell anyone you think that may be interested in attending.
