CEHG goes to Puerto Rico for SMBE (talks)

The SMBE meeting is one of the most important evolutionary biology meetings of the year. This year (2014) it takes place in Puerto Rico from June 9th till June 12th. The Stanford Center for Computational, Evolutionary and Human Genomics (CEHG) sponsors the event. We are also well represented with 17 talks, 7 posters and 2 symposia that are (co-)organized by CEHG members. Visit us at Stand 9! Here is a list of the CEHG talks:
