     This 'summer' edition of the Newsletter is very short - a more
extensive edition will follow in the autumn.


     The last linkage course at Columbia University was held June
24-28.  The next linkage courses will be at Rockefeller University
(and, as in the past, at the University of Zurich).  Dates are given
below. Interested researchers are urged to apply early as our courses
tend to fill up quickly:

     October 7-11, 1996, at University of Zurich, Switzerland (ad-
vanced course, maximum of 12 participants).  Deadline for applications
is August 20, 1996.

     October 14-18, 1996, at Rockefeller University (advanced course,
maximum of 20 participants, with preference to participants from U.S.
institutions and companies). Deadline for applications is August 30,

     To obtain information on these courses, please write to Katherine
Montague, course coordinator, by email (preferred) or fax.

     We will use our book (Terwilliger and Ott, "Handbook of Human
Genetic Linkage", Johns Hopkins University Press, 1994), with supple-
mental handouts for advanced courses.  Participants are expected to
buy the book and bring it to the course;  in case of problems please
contact Katherine Montague in advance of the course.  A list of
corrections for the book may be downloaded from our anonymous ftp
site, linkage.cpmc.columbia.edu (file corr_ter.txt in directory book).


In our new Laboratory of Statistical Genetics at Rockefeller Universi-
ty, New York, we are looking for colleagues to join us in our efforts
to develop, implement, and apply methods of linkage analysis and
association to find genes underlying complex traits.  Positions are
open at the postdoctoral level, and faculty positions may be discussed
at any time.  We are particularly interested in researchers with a
good background in statistical genetics.  Rockefeller University is
located in a prime area in Manhattan, situated in a garden-like
campus.  The University's Starr Center for Human Genetics provides
diverse opportunities for application of new methods and active
collaboration on interesting data sets.
