1.1.2 H-Invitational 2

To achieve the sophisticated annotation of new dataset as H-Invitational dataset 2, Functional Annotation Meeting was held at November 10 - 15, 2003.

Purposes

   Establishing a standard procedure of functional annotation of human genes.
   Updating functional annotation of human full-length cDNAs (H-InvDB).
   Discovering "seeds" of future scientific research.
