We would like to bring
to your attention the regional meeting on Mobile Genetic Elements, October 24th
- 26th, 2013, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor, NY. The unique
element of this meeting is the bringing together of researchers in all systems,
at CSHL, an environment rich in transposon biology, both past and present. We
look forward to an interactive meeting, sharing recent advances in transposon
research and discussing emerging trends in the field. Transposon-related
research in all systems is welcome, without any geographical or subject
limitations. For further information and to register/submit abstracts, please
visit the CSHL meetings website: http://meetings.cshl.org/meetings/2013/transpose13.shtml.
The abstract submission and registration deadline is 15th September, but, shall
be extended to the 1st October. All sessions will include talks selected from
submitted abstracts. Participation of graduate students, post-doctoral fellows,
and junior investigators is particularly encouraged. Students and postdocs are
eligible for financial support towards registration costs, full support may be
