1  | International news conference (E-mail: okeefe@OLYMPUS.NET)

Interested parties are invited to attend an international news conference in New York City next Wednesday to discuss issues raised in a major new book, "Genetics of Criminal and Antisocial Behaviour" (John Wiley & Sons, ISBN 0-471-95719-4).
The controversial legal and moral implications of this landmark work will be explored at a news conference chaired by Professor Sir Michael Rutter of the Institute of Psychiatry, London, and including Dr. Deborah Denno of the Law School, Fordham University, New York, and Dr. Gregory Carey of the Institute of Behavioral Genetics, University of Colorado.
The news conference will be held at the New York Academy of Sciences, 2 E. 63 St, New York City, beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, January 24. If you would like to attend the conference or receive a copy of the news briefing, please contact: U.S.: Amanda Clarke, aclarke@jwiley.com, 001-212-850-6172

3  | Leptin Receptor (OB-R) cloned.


GenBank has released the sequence records for mouse and human leptin receptor mRNA submitted by Millennium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. of Cambridge, MA, and published in the December 29 issue of Cell.

For your convenience, the results of two homology searches are provided. The first is a BLASTP search of the SwissProt database using the human leptin receptor protein sequence as a query.
The second search is a BLASTN search against the database of expressed sequence tags dbEST), using the human leptin receptor mRNA sequence as a query.
