New one-week summer course at Mt. Desert Island Biological Laboratories:
Evolutionary Foundations for Medicine and Public Health, August 8-12, 2011
Genome Biology, in conjunction with Genome Medicine, is pleased to host the second annual Beyond the Genome conference in Washington DC from 19 - 22 September 2011. This year's conference will focus on cancer genomics, the human microbiome and exome and genomic sequencing and how these approaches are being used to identify common and rare disease-causing mutations. Technological as well as medical or biological perspectives will be discussed.
Symposium on Evolutionary Medicine at the Annual Conference of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society.
At the 23rd annual meeting of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society in Montpellier, France, I organize a symposium on evolutionary medicine. The focus of this symposium will be on the breadth and on novel directions of the field of evolutionary medicine. People interested in giving a presentation within this symposium are asked to submit an abstract through the conference website, specifying that the contribution is meant for the symposium on evolutionary medicine. This meeting will be held from 29th June until 3rd July 2011. For more information please contact Nicole Bender: firstname.lastname@example.org
