BTI Scientists Flock to Annual Plant and Animal Genome Conference

Plant & Animal Genome XXIVThe hallways of Boyce Thompson Institute will be a little quieter this week, as more than a dozen researchers escape the Ithaca winter by flying to San Diego for the 24th Plant & Animal Genome Meeting (PAG).

The conference is the “largest ag-genomics meeting in the world,” according to the website, and many far-flung collaborators and research groups hold their own annual meetings during the event. At PAG, researchers can attend hundreds of talks and posters on advances in genome research and sign up for workshops to learn how to use the latest bioinformatics tools.

At this year’s meeting, BTI continues to have a strong presence, just as it has over the past several years.

Attendees interested in learning more about BTI research can see the posters and talks listed below:
