First guests arriving! Collaborations already forming with work on CArGome in gastrointestinal biology. This meeting will be one of the biggest and most innovative of all meetings ever held here in this area. The speakers from around the world are using cutting edge methods in genetics, genomics, and systems biology to address some sophisticated questions. URMC faculty are welcome to sit in on the talks at no charge!
Safe travels!
