Excellent 50%; Very Good 44%; Good 6%.
It is hard to improve the meeting. It’s a good mixture of conference and workshop with a lot of input from expert of adjacent field.
I strongly support the idea the meeting is organized in the future at a regular basis.
Very high quality, open minded with presentations ranging from pure genomics to implementation in the field of ecology; plenty of novelties. Plenty of time to discuss and to establish potential collaborations
I hope to have the possibility to go in the future to this meeting. We learn a lot, and also the size is well, the students have the possibility to talk of discuss with senior
Thanks to the organizers for an extremely interesting and productive meeting.
Great meeting. This is a unique meeting because it brings together a group of scientists that dont normally interact with each other. Thus, great opportunities for cross-interactions. This meeting has the potential to fill a very unique niche. I enjoyed meeting new people from diverse fields. I plan to attend again and encourage my colleagues to do so.
This meeting was a great match to my interests but also challenged me to think outside of my normal sphere. I applaud the organizers and the participants in making this a useful meeting.
The meeting was very well organized and at a very good location. I enjoyed it very much.
I hope this meeting continues as it was a valuable forum for the field of comparative genomics.
This meeting is unique in its broad organism focus. Please keep supporting it.
