4th International Workshop on Crocodilian Genetics and Genomics

4th International Workshop on Crocodilian Genetics and Genomics

Dates: May 16-18, 2012
Venue: Holiday Inn Esplanade Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia

The International Crocodilian Genomes Working Group (ICGWG) has made unprecedented progress in sequencing three crocodilian genomes(Crocodylus porosus, Alligator mississippiensis and Gavialis gangeticus). This effort has created an immense amount of data with a vast number of uses. This workshop will allow collaborators to convene to discuss data management issues, share findings, elaborate on further requirements and network with other crocodilian geneticists to direct future research. May is the beginning of the beautiful dry season in Darwin and since the saltwater crocodile is one of the focus species, it was thought appropriate to have this workshop in Darwin, Australia. For the enthusiast, salt water crocodiles are abundant in the wild whilst the crocodile farming industry is reliant on their captive production. Attendees are encouraged to take advantage and explore the Top End with all its aspects.The Crocodile Specialist Group meeting will be held in Manila,Philippines in the following week (22-25 May). However, given the specialty of this field, it was considered appropriate to host this workshop as a separate event. It is hoped that attendees will consider attending both as they are distinctly different in their focus.Registration fees: are to be waived for the workshop itself and will include morning/afternoon teas, lunch and a cocktail function. However,a conference dinner will be organised for the Friday night for $100 per person. Enquiries: Dr Sally Isberg,PO Box 329, Noonamah NT, Australia 0837
