Event Details

The Institute for Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Studies (IBEST) and the University of Idaho will host the first annual Inland Northwest Genomics Research Symposium on the University of Idaho campus May 16th, 2013. The symposium provides researchers and professionals from the Pacific Northwest and beyond the opportunity to attend presentations from local and nationally renowned scholars performing cutting edge research. 

The symposium will feature a keynote address given by the distinguished Dr. Leroy Hood of the Institute for Systems Biology.

The following scientists are scheduled to speak:

  • Dr. Larry J. Forney, University of Idaho, Human Microbiome
  • Dr. David Tank, University of Idaho, Plant Systematics
  • Dr. Amit Dhingra, Washington State University, Plant Genomics
  • Dr. Tom Spencer, Washington State University, Animal Genomics

Concurrent sessions will be held on technology and big data issues, current and near-future technologies and research being conducted by local researchers and in local cores. 

- Genomics Resources Core

- Computational Resources Core

- Optical Imaging Core

- Mass Spectrometry Core

The INWGRS will end with a poster session to showcase research being performed using technologies in genomics, bioinformatics and computational biology, mass spectrometry, optical imaging and flow cytometry. Abstracts will be accepted now until April 26, 2013. Due to limited space, poster abstracts will be reviewed and selected by the INWGRS organizing committee. Notification of poster acceptance will occur by May 3, 2013 via email.

Poster Categories are:
Genomics
Bioinformatics, Computational Biology
Computational Infrastructure
Proteomics
Metabolomics
Optical Imaging
Flow Cytometry

Core facilities poster submission criteria:
Only posters on topics that include the use of one of the technologies described above will be accepted.

Best Poster Awards

There will be awards for the four best posters presented at the first annual INWGRS that contain original research. The INWGRS poster committee will review all poster abstracts submitted to the meeting and select a limited number of candidates for the award consideration. Lead authors of the candidate posters will be invited to submit a PDF of their posters by May 14th, 2013 and prepare a short (10 minute) presentation of their poster to the INWGRS poster committee during the poster session. To enter the poster competition, please check the “Best Poster Competition” check box when submitting your abstract. 

Abstract Content & Formatting

All abstracts should have the following:

  • A sentence stating the study's objective (unless given in the title).
  • A brief statement of methods, if pertinent.
  • A summary of the results obtained.
  • A statement of the conclusions.  It is not satisfactory to say "the results will be discussed."

Other formatting guidelines:

  • Use a short, specific title.
  • Do Not CAPITALIZE ALL LETTERS IN THE TITLE OR SPEAKER INFORMATION.  Use Sentence Format.
  • Do Not bold letters in the title, unless necessary.
