We are SO excited to be back after a two year absence!

The TENTH!!! Annual Yosemite Symbiosis Workshop 2022

An integrative meeting of biologists focusing on symbiosis research
May 13-15, 2022
Sierra Nevada Research Institute, Wawona, Yosemite National Park


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 10th 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 13. The talks and poster sessions will be held May 14-15, 2022. 

Where:  This is the best part! The meeting takes place at the Sierra Nevada Research Station, in Wawona California, within the border of Yosemite National Park!
