New & Noteworthy
March 24, 2014
The 2014 Yeast Genetics Meeting will be held July 29 – August 3 at the University of Washington, Seattle, Washington. Abstract submission and registration sites are now open. The abstract submission deadline is April 24. Be sure to get your abstract in by the deadline so that it will be programmed and included in the Program Book.*
The Genetics Society of America is pleased to announce the following awards and lectures will be presented:
- George Church, Harvard University – Lee Hartwell Lecture
- Olga Troyanskya, Princeton University – Ira Herskowitz Award
- Jeremy Thorner, University of California, Berkeley – Lifetime Achievement Award
- Anita Hopper, Ohio State University – Winge-Lindegren Address
In addition, there will be two special presentations: Jon Lorsch, Director of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, NIH will discuss the future plans of the Institute and Gerry Fink, MIT, will give a retrospective look at Fred Sherman’s life and his impact on the field of yeast genetics research.
As usual, SGD staff will be at the meeting and we look forward to meeting and talking with yeast researchers. Don’t miss this premier conference of the yeast community!
*IMPORTANT NOTE: NEW THIS YEAR: The full text of all abstracts submitted by the deadline date will ONLY be available online, as a pdf and in the abstract search program, and will not be printed in the program book. The program book will still contain the full schedule information including platform and poster sessions date, time, title, authors, gene index and a listing of exhibits. Late abstracts will only be accepted if space permits and will not be included in the online search.
