You are invited to attend the Yeast Genetics Meeting, July 29 – August 3, 2014 at the University of Washington, Seattle. This is the premier meeting for students, postdoctoral fellows, research staff and principal investigators studying various aspects of eukaryotic biology in yeast.
Along with presentations from the submitted abstracts, the following awards and lectures, which are a cornerstone of the meeting, will be presented:
George Church, Lee Hartwell Lecture
Olga Troyanskaya, Ira Herskowitz Award
