@molecologist at #Evol2013: What we're presenting (updated)

Albion Basin - Alta Utah

Updated to include Holly’s talk on Phylosift, and her keynote for iEvoBio.
The Evolution 2013 meetings are nearly upon us, and several of our contributors here at The Molecular Ecologist are going to be in Snowbird, Utah for the joint annual meeting of the American Society of Naturalists, the Society of Systematic Biologists, and the Society for the Study of Evolution. Rather than make you hunt through the online program, here’s where we’ll be, and what we’re presenting:

  • Holly will present “PhyloSift: a pipeline for phylogenetic analysis of genomes and metagenomes.” on Saturday at 10:30, as part of the Evolutionary Genetics and/or Genomics section in Cotton D/Snowbird Center. [program link]
  • Mark will present “Rapid adaptation to captivity: evidence from pedigree and gene expression data” on Saturday at 2:30, as part of the Evolution in Response to Anthropogenic Change section in Rendezvous B/Snowbird Center. [program link]
  • Kim will present “Estimating effective population size in natural populations: which method is best?” on Sunday at 8:00, as part of the Population Genetics and/or Genomics, Empirical section in Alpine A and B/Snowbird Center. [program link]
  • Tim will present “A panacea for peer review?” on Monday at 10:30, as part of the lightning talk section in Superior A/Cliff Lodge. [program link]
  • Jeremy will present “Evidence for recent adaptation in genome regions associated with ecological traits in Medicago truncatula” on Tuesday at 2:45, as part of the Genetics of Adaptation section in Rendezvous A/Snowbird Center. [program link]
  • And then, at iEvoBio on Tuesday, Holly will give the invited keynote address.

As you can see, we’re conveniently distributed across the schedule, so you don’t have to choose between all these excellent talks. Although, based on the images of Snowbird I’ve been finding on Flickr (like the one above) you may find you don’t want to spend much of Evolution 2013 indoors …
