Registration is now open for the March 2011 GMOD Meeting (
). This meeting is part
of GMOD Americas 2011, an event that includes a day of Satellite Meetings, a
GMOD Course (ialready full), and for the first time, an "Introduction to
GMOD" session the night before the meeting for GMOD newcomers. GMOD Americas
2011 events are being held at the US National Evolutionary Synthesis Center
(NESCent) in Durham, North Carolina, United States.
As with previous GMOD meetings, this meeting will have a mixture of project
talks, component talks, and user talks. Our guest speaker is Dr. Eric Stone
of North Carolina State University. Dr. Stone will talk about his
experience on the "Drosophila Genome Reference Panel," a project that is
sequencing 192 lines. See
The agenda is driven by attendee suggestions, and you are encouraged to add
your suggestions now (
