Dear Colleagues,

We will be having this year the 4th Practical Summer Workshop in Functional Genomics (PSWGF, June 9 to 20) at Ohio State University. As in the past, it will be an honor to have students, postdocs and even faculty from your institutions participate. We are building a world-class set of speakers (confirmed list below), and the research will cover several state-of-the-art techniques to address fundamental questions in plant systems biology. You can find more information at http://caps.osu.edu/2014-fgw. The site is being constantly updated to include schedules, events and other information, as they develop. It also has links to previous events that would give you a better idea of what we have done before. The site also contains a link for applications. We anticipate having room for 20 to 30 participants. There will be a limited number of fellowships that we intend to award to participants in real need.

I would very much appreciate if you could start spreading the word and directing interested individuals to apply. Please feel free to contact me <jang.40 from osu.edu<mailto:jang.40 from osu.edu>> if you have any questions.
