June 5, 2008 (Cold Spring Harbor, NY)

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press (CSHLP) proudly announces the upcoming release of the Cold Spring Harbor Symposia 70 Year Archive, a complete collection of papers from the annual Cold Spring Harbor Symposia on Quantitative Biology. These Symposia are some of the most influential and historical meetings in the field of biology. The archive, which will span the years 1933 to 2003, will be available in October 2008, and will be hosted on the HighWire platform. A one-time payment will offer perpetual access to these volumes.

"Since 1933, advances in biology such as the structure of DNA, the genetic code, the discovery of mobile genes, the PCR and RNAi techniques, and the feasibility of a human genome project have been announced, debated, and distilled at our annual Symposia," said Dr. John Inglis, Executive Director of CSHLP. "The Symposia focus on a different and timely field of research each year, and the participants are handpicked luminaries and rising stars of that particular field. We are excited to be able to offer the complete record of this historically unique material online for the first time with the help of HighWire."

The archive of these historic meetings will be available online as a stand-alone collection for one-time purchase covering 1933 to 2003, and will include the following highly influential volumes:

The contributions recorded in each Symposium volume, and the accompanying photographs of participants in action, make a unique contribution to the scholarly history of science in the 20th century and the emergence of molecular and cellular biology as drivers of all aspects of current biomedical research. CSH Symposia volumes from 2004 &mdash present will available online with the purchase of the current year's hardcover print edition.
