| Deep Gene student travel
awards to Botany 2002:
Madison, WI, August 2-8, 2002
Applications due April 15, 2002
The Deep Gene Research Coordination Group exists to integrate green
plant phylogenetics and genomics (http://ucjeps.berkeley.edu/bryolab/deepgene/).
We want to explore the ways in which comparative phylogenetic studies
can inform functional genomic studies, and knowledge of plant genomes
can inform the understanding of phylogenetic relationships.
With the support of the National Science Foundation (Grant DEB-0090227),
the group will offer travel awards of up to $500 (on a reimbursement
basis requiring original receipts) to attend Botany
2002; eligible are undergraduates, graduate students, and post-docs.
You need to be presenting a poster or a talk at the meeting that
is related to these subjects, and need to participate in the Deep
Gene session tentatively scheduled for Thursday August 8th (where
discussions will focus on interdisciplinary research approaches
including student research concerns).
To apply, please send the following to Brent Mishler at firstname.lastname@example.org
(electronic submissions only) by April 15, 2002: a one-page description
of your background, research interests, & plans, a short CV,
a copy of your submitted BSA abstract (those are due to BSA by April
1, 2002), and have your major professor email a very brief (few
sentence) endorsement of your application and need for the financial
