now to attend the 3rd Annual Genes in Ecology, Ecology in Genes Symposium on
November 4, 5, & 6, 2005, in Kansas City. The Symposium will begin on Friday at 7:00 p.m. and conclude on Sunday
at noon. Information will be posted to our website, www.ksu.edu/ecogen, as details are finalized.
Please share this announcement with colleagues and students who are
interested in learning more about the emerging field of Ecological
An emerging field at the interface of ecology, evolution, and genomics that
seeks to place the functional significance of genes and genomes into an
ecological and evolutionary context. The Ecological Genomics
initiative in Kansas comprises over 30 faculty members from three Kansas
Symposium will feature lectures by scientists at the forefront of Ecological
and Evolutionary Functional Genomics. Oral and poster presentations on
Kansas Ecological Genomics projects will also be included.
We want to learn about your research, too! Poster presentation topics
should be related to Ecological Genomics. Posters will be presented
Friday evening and from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, November 5. Poster dimensions are not to exceed 4'
w x 3' h. Please follow the abstract submission guidelines
Thursday, September 15, 2005. A limited number of submitted poster abstracts
will be selected for oral presentation. Notification of selection for
oral presentation will be communicated before September 30.
An optional Saturday night banquet will be held at the BRIO Tuscan Grille overlooking
