  Dear Subscribers:

  You are encouraged to make use of SMBnet and the SMB Digest, which
  established in 1992 and have grown steadily in content and
subscription. The
  Digest commenced publication with less than two hundred subscribers
and has
  grown to be distributed semi-monthly to over a thousand subscribers.
  number of items per issue has increased from less than 5 the first
year to
  about 8 presently, while the number of issues has increased by a
  growth parallels the increase in activity and vitality in the field.

  You are also invited to visit "SMBnet" under "Publications" at the SMB
  page (, and to submit not only announcements of positions
  available, meetings to be held and publications, but queries/requests
  other items of interest to SMB members and the
  biology community as a whole.  Send your e-mails to:  [log in para visualizar]

  If you are currently not a member of the Society, you might click on

                         11th Annual Meeting on
        Mathematical and Statistical Aspects of Molecular Biology

       Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge
            Tuesday 20th March - Wednesday 21st March, 2001

  Scientific Organisers:  David Balding (Department of Applied
  Statistics, University of Reading), Nick Goldman (Department of
  Zoology, University of Cambridge), Nuala Sheehan (Department of
  Epidemiology & Public Health, University of Leicester)

  The 11th annual meeting on Mathematical and Statistical Aspects of
  Biology will be held at the Isaac Newton Institute for the
  Sciences, Cambridge, on Tuesday 20th March and Wednesday 21st March,
  The meeting aims to bring together mathematicians, statisticians,
  and computer scientists who have common research interests in the
  molecular biological data.

  The meeting will follow its familiar format, with 12-15 approximately
  half-hour talks selected from participants' applications.  These will
  from early afternoon on 20th March until afternoon tea on 21st March,
  ample opportunities provided for discussion. The cost of attendance at
  meeting (academic rate) will be 85 (full residential) or 60 (without

  accommodation), with some reduction available for students.

  After the main part of MASAMB-XI, it will be possible for one or more
  'special interest groups' ('SIGs') to take advantage of the presence
  like-minded scientists and make use of the Newton Institute's
facilities to
  stage further talks, continued discussions, etc.  SIGs could take
place in
  the later part of the afternoon of 21st March, or on Thursday 22nd
  The MASAMB-XI Scientific Organisers are dependent on others to propose
  organise any SIGs: please contact any of them to discuss proposals.
  note that plans for any SIGs must be fully agreed by 15th December
