This integrative field
combines genomic tools and ecological approaches to determine the
functional significance of genes and genomes and their evolutionary
and ecological context. The Ecological Genomics Institute at Kansas
State University comprises 25 faculty from seven disciplines.
The Symposium will feature lectures by
scientists at the forefront of Ecological and Evolutionary
Functional Genomics. Oral and poster presentations on selected KSU
Ecological Genomics projects will also be included.
PRESENT YOUR RESEARCH
We want to learn about your research, too! Poster
topics should be related to the field of Ecological Genomics.
Posters will be presented Friday evening and from 4 to 6 p.m. on
Saturday. Poster dimensions are not to exceed 4' w x 3' h.
