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.
