The Genomics of Energy and Environment Meeting program will feature international speakers on a range of exciting topics, but will also provide opportunities to interact with JGI users supported through the JGI Community Science Program (CSP), the Facilities Integrating Collaborations for User Science (FICUS) initiative, and the DOE Bioenergy Research Centers, as well as technical and scientific JGI staff. Students, postdocs, and principal investigators considering future applications to the CSP or other JGI User Programs are particularly encouraged to attend.
