Dear Colleagues,

I am announcing the 5th Practical Summer Workshop in Functional Genomics (PSWFG, June 6 to 17, 2016) at The Ohio State University. As in the past, it will be an honor to have your advanced undergraduate students, masters students and new Ph.D. students apply. We are building a world-class set of speakers (working confirmed list below), and the research will cover several state-of-the-art techniques to address fundamental questions in plant biology. You can find more information at https://caps.osu.edu/2016-FGW  . The site is being constantly updated to include schedules, events and other information. It also has links to previous events that would give you a better idea of what we have done in the past. The site contains a link for applications, from which we anticipate accepting 20 to 30 highly qualified participants.

I would very much appreciate if you could start spreading the word and directing interested individuals to apply by tomorrow, April 15, 2016. Please feel free to contact me at slotkin.2 from osu.edu<mailto:slotkin.2 from osu.edu> if you have any questions.
