Fungal Genetics 2011

FGSC – a key partner in fungal biology research

FGSC logoAn article about the Fungal Genetics Stock Center written by the curators provides some insight into the 50 year history of this resource. It is a great summary of how the stock center has grown over the years and demonstrates how it is an essential aspect of how research on filamentous fungi is possible. The FGSC staff also provide important infrastructure in organization of meetings like the Neurospora and Fungal Genetics meetings and are also active pursuing their own research.  So don’t forget to cite FGSC in  your talks and (very importantly) papers.

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.
