Evolution, Development & Genomics 2012 Symposium – Early registration deadline & scholarship availability‏

The Future of Evo-Devo – Genomes in context: Systems, populations and environment

February 10-12, 2012

The Nines in Portland, OR


Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the availability of scholarships for travel to, and attendance of our symposium: “The Future of Evo-Devo – Genomes in context: systems, populations and environment.” The deadline for scholarship applications is December 16th, one week before the rapidly approaching EARLY REGISTRATION DEADLINE of December 23rd. Register now to ensure you receive the early registration price. Scholarship applicants will receive the early registration price, regardless of selection for award.

The symposium is being organized by students and faculty affiliated with the University of Oregon’s NSF IGERT program on evolution, development and genomics. It will be held February 10 – 12, 2012 in Portland, OR at the Nines Hotel. Previous IGERT symposia have featured talks from many leaders in the field and received good coverage in Science. We have every expectation that this symposium will be equally engaging and positively influence the future of the field. We have deliberately capped registration for this symposium in order to facilitate a more intimate environment and to encourage free discussion between attendees and speakers. As such, if you are interested in attending, please register soon to ensure that you will join us as we discuss the future of evolution, development and genomics. Confirmed speakers include:

Peter Andolfatto (Princeton)

Bill Bradshaw & Chris Holzapfel (University of Oregon)

Anna Di Rienzo (University of Chicago)

Paul Hohenlohe (University of Idaho)

Alexander Johnson (UCSF)

Michael Levine (Berkeley)
