Dear arthropod folks,
The Entomological Society of America will hold its 57th Annual
Meeting at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana from
December 13-16, 2009. See http://www.entsoc.org/am/cm/index.htm
This meeting will include many sessions on insects and other arthropods;
these two among them focus on genomics and informatics.
