Host-pathogen symposium at SMBE 2020
Together with Azim Ansari, Ellen will be hosting a symposium at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution (SMBE). The topic of the symposium is “Host-parasite co-evolution through joint genome analyses” and will bring together researchers working on genomic, transcriptomic or potentially other ‘omic datasets dually collected for host and pathogen species. The invited speaker is Vincent Pedergnana. Please spread the word to anyone you know who is working on this topic! Abstracts are due January 20, 2020.
Unfortunately, SMBE has been cancelled and this symposium won’t be taking place. We hope to organize something similar in the future.
