Plant Molecular Biology (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Exploring High Throughput Data Sets


July 19-20, 2014


Holderness School
Holderness, NH


Ryan C. Sartor

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Plant Molecular Biology is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is on the analysis of large-scale plant data sets. With the aim of highlighting current computational techniques, participants will have a chance to present and hear about research involving the latest approaches to high throughput data analysis in plants.
