The 32nd annual meeting on The Biology of Genomes will begin at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 and run through lunch on Saturday, May 9.
The 2020 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. There will be a special session on the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of genome research as well as a session dedicated to helping trainees and early career researchers successfully navigate the NIH funding process.

Abstracts should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. Status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.
All questions pertaining to registration, fees, housing, meals, transportation, visas, abstract submission or any other matters may be directed to Catie Carr at email@example.com.
We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Apply in writing to Catie Carr at firstname.lastname@example.org stating need for financial support - preference is given to those submitting abstracts.
This conference may be supported in part with funds provided by: National Human Genome Research Institute
