    Dear Colleague,
    Many of you provided your invaluable assistance in reviewing manuscripts 
    for InCoB2006 - thank you.
    This year's InCoB will be held in Hong Kong, 27-30 Aug., 2007. The website 
    is ready and we would like to post the names of the Program Committee 
    members there.
    We will be calling for paper submissions shortly and we would like to 
    request you to assist us review manuscripts for publication in 
    BMC Bioinformatics as a supplement. 23 papers were published last 
    The reviews will be during the period mid-April to June 2007. Could you 
    please let me know whether you are happy to serve on the Program Committee?
    If yes, kindly provide me your current affiliation and prefereed email 
    address as well as upto five phrases, summarizing your areas of expertise. 
    Due to the large numbers of reviewers who happily gave us their valuable 
    time, very few reviewers had even two papers to review, while all 
    submissions received 2-3 expert reviews.
    We look forward to your renewed support and see you in Hong Kong.
    With best wishes,
    on behalf of InCoB2007 Co-Chairs,
    Shoba Ranganathan 
    President, APBioNet 
    Chairperson, InCoB ExCo
