The European Science Foundation (ESF) workshop on tran- scriptional regulatory networks held in Madrid this spring, and sponsored by the ESF Programme for Integrated Approaches for Functional Genomics [http://www.functionalgenomics.], focused on the theme of tran- scriptional regulation in the broadest sense. Topics pre- sented ranged from theoretical approaches to experimental work, and from small systems to studies on many thousands of transcriptional regulatory interactions. The small size of the meeting allowed for ample discussion, which provided a lively atmosphere of scientific dialog. To describe a transcrip- tional regulatory network, one first needs to know which regions of the genome are transcribed. Roderic Guigó (Centre de Regulacio Genomica, Barcelona, Spain) presented the current status of gene annotation in the human genome. Although the genome sequence itself is now very accurate, our knowledge of the number, location and splice
