Upcoming conference: DOE-JGI User Meeting: Energy, Genomes, Environment, Microbes, Trees and more ...

Just got this email I thought would be useful to share (with a few edits)

Still time to register for JGI "Genomics of Energy & Environment" 6th Annual User Meeting

The DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) hosts the "Genomics of Energy & Environment" 6th Annual User Meeting (March 22-24, 2011):

  • Genomics of Biofuel Crops
  • Behavioral Genetics of Pollinating Bees
  • Microbiome Analyses from Humans to Shipworms
  • Metatranscriptomics of Marine Microbial Communities
  • Successful Transposable Elements Secrets
  • Great Prairie Soil Metagenomics
Confirmed speakers include:
