2014 Biology of Genomes Accepted Talks and Posters Announced

The 2014 Biology of Genomes, one of the biggest genomics conferences has announced the list of accepted talks and posters. This year’s conference starts on May 6 and ends on 10, 2014 at CSHL’s campus. Biology of Genomes is organized by Carlos Bustamante, Michel Georges, Elaine Mardis, and Molly Przeworski.

The 2014 Biology of Genomes has 50 selected talks from many top Genome scientists & has over 300 posters on the latest in Genomics. As usual, The Biology of Genomes conference had lots of interest and got oversubscribed even before the abstract submission deadline in February.

The 2014 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.

Here are the list of accepted talks at BOG14 and the titles.
