Serenella Sukno, University of Salamanca
The meeting will take place as part of the Twenty Fifth Fungal Genetics Conference, Asilomar Conference Grounds, Pacific Grove, California, USA. For more information about the conference, please see this page:
Meeting Romm: Scripps Building on the Asilomar Conference Grounds.
Data and Time: Wednesday, March 18th, 12:15 – 2:00 PM

12:20-12:40 Lijun Ma – Status of the C. graminicola genome sequencing project.

12:40-1:00 Stephen Wirsel – Colletotrichum graminicola causes contrasting symptoms and differentially affects photosynthesis, senescence and host gene expression when infecting mature or senescing corn leaves.

1:00-1:20 Jo Ann Crouch – Will genomics solve the riddle of Colletotrichum sex determination?

1:20-1:40 Michael Thon – The Fungal Gene Cluster Database and other topics

1:40-2:00 Discussion – C. graminicola genome annotation and other topics.

Box lunches will be provided for workshop attendees.  Note: There will be 20 box lunches available for pre-registered participants.
If you would like to attend, please send me an email and let me know.  Even if you have already replied to my previous email, please send me an email again to confirm that you can attend.  We need to have an accurate count of attendees so we can order a large enough room and have enough box lunches.
