Default Updates and Travel Awards

I am writing to provide a remider about deadlines and provide a brief update regarding the 2012 Workshop on Genomics being held in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic being held from 8-21 January, 2012. Updated information can be found on the Workshop web site:

Additions to the schedule include:

Mike Zody, Broad Institution
Manfred Grabherr, Broad Institution
Julien Catchen, University of Oregon
Alice McHardy, Max Planck Institut Informatik

The application deadline is 15 November, 2011. If you or a colleague are considering applying please make sure to do so before the deadline. We will be reviewing applications as quickly as possible so that travel arrangements can be made. A direct link to the application site is:

We will be awarding up to five $1,000 travel awards. To be considered for a travel award you will have to be accepted to the Workshop on Genomics and submit a written essay describing how the advent of moden sequencing technologies has altered your research program. Selected essays will be published on the web site. More detail and a submission form can be found on our scholarship page at:

The application deadline for the Advanced Topic Sessions is also 15 November, 2011. In addition to 3-day sessions on BioPython and R/BioConductor, we are working with the GMOD group to bring a 3-day GMOD/gbrowse Advanced Topic Session. For those of you interested in genome annotation and visualization this should be an outstanding opportunity.
