  1. Dear FGACG authors,
    I am currently one of the co-organizers of the Boston Area Yeast Meetings (BAYM) and I was wondering if there’s anywhere on this fantastic blog where it would be appropriate to list our link? Or if I may at least post some information here?

    BAYM is a monthly meeting of yeast researchers in the Boston area. Each meeting consists of a casual dinner (pizza, drinks, dessert) followed by two 30 minute research seminars. The speakers- principal investigators, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students- represent university labs from throughout the greater-Boston metropolitan region. The seminars cover a variety of fields including transcription and regulatory networks, DNA replication and recombination, signal transduction, biofilm formation, hyphal invasive growth, silencing, fungal pathogenesis, ecology, and proteomics. Approximately 50 to 100 scientists attend each meeting.

    BAYM has been hosted for about the past decade at the Whitehead Institute, and is now hosted jointly at the Broad Institute and the FAS Center for Systems Biology at Harvard University. As in past years, BAYM serves as a forum for sharing basic scientific research topics related to yeast (and for enjoying a free meal and beverage with your research peers). One of the goals for this season is to expand the research topics so they include not only Saccharomyces cerevisiae, but other yeast species (and special guest non-yeast fungi) as well. Our aim is to bring together all fungal scientists in the greater Boston area, facilitating a broader, more multi-disciplinary, research community.
