2013 Biology of Genomes Accepted Talks and Posters List Announced

The 2013 Biology of Genomes, one of the biggest genomics conferences to be held in May 2013 at CSHL has announced the list of accepted talks and posters. The four day long conference begins on 7th May and ends on 11th May and the 2013 meeting

will address DNA sequence variation and its role in molecular evolution, population genetics and complex diseases, comparative genomics, large-scale studies of gene and protein expression, and genomic approaches to ecological systems. Both technologies and applications will be emphasized. In addition there will be a special session on the ethical, legal and social implications of genome research.

The Biology of Genomes, one of the most awaited genomics conference boasts of great line of talks and posters. The full schedule of the event is not finalized yet. Here is the list of 48 accepted talks at the 2013 Biology of Genomes.
