Mimulus meeting

Hello Mimulus enthusiasts.

The 2014 Mimulus meeting is rapidly approaching.
We will begin with an informal gathering on the evening of June 18th and will have two full days (6/19 and 6/20 up to the Gould lecture at evolution) of lightning talks, updates about Mimulus science and infrastructure, informal science discussion and a lot of fun. The meeting will be on Duke’s campus in Durham NC.


Focal topics of discussion will include

— The state of Mimulus genomes and population / species sequencing
— Seed collection resources and management
Mimulus taxonomy / naming
Mimulus education and outreach
Mimulus evolution.org site revamp
Mimulus as model system in macro-ecology and macro-evolution
Mimulus evo-devo

Register by adding your name to the google doc (goo.gl/qpfDPD), a title of your lightning talk, and identifying focal topics that most interest you. A tentative schedule is also available as the second sheet on the google doc.

Participant support stipend (up to $600) for educators (i.e., pedagogical collaborators), faculty/postdocs whose primary focus is teaching, and undergraduate attendees may be available. Contact Lila Fishman [ lila DOT fishman AT mso DOT umt DOT edu ] for more information regarding this support.
