TENTH!!! Annual Yosemite Symbiosis Workshop 2020!

An integrative meeting of biologists focusing on symbiosis research
May 15-17, 2020
Sierra Nevada Research Institute, Wawona, Yosemite National Park

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Martin Kaltenpoth

Why: Our goal is to better integrate scientists that focus on symbiosis research, including research that study animal-microbe and plant-microbe systems, as well as broader topic related to the microbiome, cooperation, and mutualism.This will be our 9th annual meeting and we have been consistently attracting scientists from all over the country and overseas.

Who: The meeting is small and intimate by design (~50 participants). We would like to make room for a diverse group of people so we will initially accept up to 3 lab members per group (including the PI) on a first come first served basis. In the past we have covered a range of symbiosis topics from ecology and evolution to molecular mechanisms in different model and non-model systems.

When: A welcome party will occur for everyone arriving on the evening of May 15. The talks and poster sessions will be held May 16-17, 2020.

Where: SNRI has a set of cabins in Wawona and all within a short walk of the conference room
