The SMBE Satellite Meeting on Eukaryotic -Omics will bring together an interdisciplinary pool of researchers to discuss current efforts, challenges, and future directions for high-throughput sequencing approaches focused on microbial eukaryotes (environmental studies of non-model organisms). The meeting program will encompass investigations of eukaryote biodiversity, ecology, and evolution, using approaches such as rRNA marker genes, shotgun metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, and computational biology tools and software pipelines.
**Update 3/26/13 – Abstract submissions are still being accepted on a rolling basis. Submission instructions are available here.
Meeting registration is NOW OPEN HERE ($100 registration fee per participant, but this is waived for recipients of travel awards and UC Davis students, faculty, and staff) – space will be limited, and participants are encouraged to register early to secure a place.
