This meeting provides an interactive forum for investigators and students 
working in eye research using the laboratory mouse as a genetic model 
system. The laboratory mouse is widely considered the premiere experimental 
organism for genetic studies that have implications, often direct, for 
human eye biology and disease.
Sessions will include:
-Photoreceptors/transduction
- Inner retinal processing
-Central vision systems

Topics include:
·       Photoreceptors/transduction: development, processing, disease
·       Inner retinal processing: development, processing and disease
·       Central vision system: development, processing and disease
·       Workshop: Clinical assessment
·       Workshop: Histological assessment
·       Workshop: Electrophysiology
·       Workshop: Genetic manipulation
·       Workshop: Genetic mapping/modifiers
·       Workshop: Mouse Mutant Resources
·       Workshop: Microarray Experiment Design and Analysis
·       Workshop: Proteomics
·       Workshop: Grant writing
