Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The 9th International Congress on Genes, Gene Families, and Isozymes marked a historic transition in the series formerly known as the International Congress on Isozymes. The name of the congress was changed to reflect the broadened scope of this field and the new directions in which it is moving. To recognize and promote this transition, a number of new features were incorporated into this congress. Accordingly, the broad-based program featured preeminent biologists from 29 different countries. A total of 350 people attended the congress. A special new feature of this congress was the Student/Fellow Program, which was designed to enhance participation by advanced undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. This congress celebrated the progress that has occurred during the past 40 years beginning with studies of isozymes and leading into studies of specific genes and gene families. As we move into the next millennium, it is clear that our field is strongly positioned and will continue to be the focus of exciting and important new research.
