BAPGXII Saturday May 30, 2015

logo with APG-p19lu5oeag1iikbhs1s351gbf18j8Stanford is hosting the 12th Bay Area Population Genomics (BAPG) meeting. The Bay Area Population Genomics meeting is a great place to (re)connect with your pop gen/genomics colleagues in the area and to present your work in a talk or a poster.

BAPGXI, held in December at UC Davis, was a great event with over 100 participants and a line up of excellent talks. Thanks to the Coop lab! You can read more here, including the storified tweets. We are excited to continue this success at Stanford!
