For a limited time, the Global Invertebrate Genomics Alliance (GIGA) will be offering a small number of full conference registration waivers courtesy of the American Genetics Association (value of $500) to qualified students who are currently working on or have recently finished an invertebrate genomics or transcriptome project. Students should still register to the conference website for a headcount.
Then, to apply for the waiver, please send a project description to the GIGA steering committee (find on the GIGA webpage - or mail to Keith Crandall - kcrandall at gwu.edu ; Gonzalo Giribet - ggiribet at g.harvard.edu ; Steven Haddock - haddock at mbari.org; or Jose Lopez - joslo at nova.edu). The committee will evaluate each summary based on merit and need.
The description should aim to be concise, no more than 1000 words that fully describes the project details - organism, questions, goals, genomics methods, hurdles etc.
Please also include the name of your major advisor, full contact information, university and the current source of funding to attend the conference.
The deadline for receipt of the abstract is Nov 28, 2016. Please send the project description as a Word file to one of the GIGA members above , and use the Subject header: "GIGA Waiver Application for the 2017 Global Biodiversity Genomics Conference: Student's last name".
