UC Davis has received funding to host an SMBE Satellite Meeting on Eukaryotic -Omics this spring – meeting dates have been set as Monday April 29 – Thursday May 2nd, 2013, and further details can be found at the meeting website: http://www.smbe.org/eukaryotes
The SMBE Satellite Meeting on Eukaryotic -Omics will bring together an interdisciplinary pool of researchers to discuss current efforts, challenges, and future directions for high-throughput sequencing approaches focused on microbial eukaryotes (environmental studies of non-model organisms). The meeting program will encompass investigations of eukaryote biodiversity, ecology, and evolution, using approaches such as rRNA marker genes, shotgun metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, and computational biology tools and software pipelines.
Program announcements, registration details, and travel award information have been posted to the meeting website. The official conference hashtag will be #SMBEeuks on Twitter.
Our call for travel award applications includes a heavy focus on diversity-encouraging early-career applicants as well as those from underrepresented groups. Please pass on this meeting announcement to anyone who might be interested in attending. Deadline for abstract submission and travel grant applications is Feburary 22, 2013.
