The Biology of Genomes - 2021

Virtual Workshop
Tuesday, May 11, 2021

The Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is pleased to announce the 33rd Cold Spring Harbor meeting on The Biology of Genomes. The 2021 meeting will address DNA sequence variation and its role in molecular evolution, population genetics and complex diseases, comparative genomics, large-scale studies of gene and protein expression, and genomic approaches to ecological systems. Both technologies and applications will be emphasized.

There will be a special session on the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of genome research as well as a session dedicated to helping trainees and early career researchers successfully navigate the NIH funding process.


The meeting will be held virtually, beginning late morning EST on Tuesday, May 11, and ending late afternoon EST on Friday, May 14, 2021.
