    3rd ANNUAL ARTHROPOD GENOMICS SYMPOSIUM

 

As more arthropod genomes are sequenced, we are faced with the ever-growing
need for databases and bioinformatics tools based on common platforms to
support comparative genomics. The Arthropod Genomics Consortium was formed
to address these issues. The first projects focus on databases and tools for
literature annotation. You are invited to join the fun as we share our
progress with the arthropod research community, by providing feedback on
these projects and input new possibilities. 

 

DATE:     June 11 to 14, 2009, in Kansas City at the Marriott Downtown

SPONSOR:  K-State Arthropod Genomics Center, Kansas State University

   Thursday evening, June 11 - Keynote presentation and welcome reception

   Friday & Saturday, June 12 and 13 - Platform and Poster sessions 

   Sunday am, June 14 - Roundtable discussion with the ArthropodBase
Consortium.  

   Noon, Sunday, June 14 - Activities will conclude.

Speakers who are experts in arthropod genomics and bioinformatics with
