Posters for Fungal Genetics Conference

To those making their posters for Fungal Genetics meeting, we salute you. Get those 3’10” x 3’10” works of art printed & ready to impress the 900 colleagues who will be at the conference.  I’ll try and count the distribution of fabric posters vs the big prints vs the hand-made 8×11 sheets. I think I’ll also be giving unofficial awards for best non-boring Venn Diagram (think outside the banana) or other memorable data viz. The abstract book should be released soon and I hope to get a Wordle up like from years past. I’m curious to see what topics are trending and if it belies how the fields are changing to address areas in biofuels, use of next gen sequencing, or other areas.

Consider submitting your posters to F1000 or other repositories if you want to share you work outside the meeting. I’m even seeing on public on twitter already from @BenoitCalmes.

The twitter hashtag is #FUNGAL2013 so get your clients ready.

Neurospora business lunch at Asilomar

[From Kevin McCluskey at the FGSC]

I am pleased to send this invitation to the Neurospora Luncheon which will be held Wednesday at the Fungal Genetics Conference. It will take place in the Chapel and box lunches will be available. This luncheon is for everyone who works with Neurospora or who wants to work with Neurospora. Please come and hear what is going on and share your opinions. It is especially important that Post-docs and students come to these meetings.

Neurospora 2010 and upcoming fungal conferences

Don’t forget to register for Neurospora 2010 held at the beautiful Asilomar Conference center in Pacific Grove, CA held April 8-11, 2010. Get your filamentous fungi fix here!

Also save the date for some other important upcoming conferences you may consider attending

Other evolutionary and genomics meetings

Scientific program for Fungal Genetics

The scientific program is up on the FGSC website. Plan out your dash between sessions, or where you will get that coffee break meeting. This will be the largest attended fungal genetics meeting yet so will be fun to see so many people enthusiastic about the field. Look forward to seeing some of the blog readers and encouraging some guest post contributions in the future as well.

Registration opens for 25th Fungal Genetics

FG25 LogoRegistration opens today for the 25th Fungal Genetics conference at Asilomar. The preliminary program is also available with a great slate of speakers already lined up and plenty of opportunity for many students and postdocs to present their work.

The 24th conference help in 2007 was great and expect a similar great opportunity for sharing science and networking with the fungal genetics community.

Fungal Genetics 2007 details

I’m including a recapping as many of the talks as I remember. There were 6 concurrent sessions each afternoon so you have to miss a lot of talks. The conference was bursting at the seams as it was- at least 140 people had to be turned away beyond the 750 who attended.

If there was any theme in the conference it was “Hey we are all using these genome sequences we’ve been talking about getting”. I only found the overview talks that solely describe the genome solely a little dry as compared to those more focused on particular questions. I guess my genome palate is becoming refined.
