Gramene is present at The Biology of Genomes Conference 2017

Gramene will present hot plant genomics research findings and cool data collections and software developments at the The Biology of Genomes Conference 2017.

This is the 30th annual meeting on The Biology of Genomes where young scientists are encouraged and in some cases are being generously supported to present new and unpublished material. It runs from the evening of Tuesday, May 9 through the afternoon of Saturday, May 13.

The meeting has been addressing exciting scientific and technological discoveries and applications in DNA sequence variation and its role in molecular evolution, population genetics, complex diseases, comparative genomics, large-scale studies of gene and protein expression, and genomic approaches to ecological systems. On Friday, there will be a special session on the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of genome research.

Come to meet Gramene Team members presenting the following four posters on the Friday afternoon session starting at 2:00 PM EDT:
