Dear all,


Looking forward to hearing about your lab’s latest work at the upcoming TAGC polyploidy workshop!  It would be great if you could help to publicize the workshop among colleagues who will be in attendance at the meeting.  I’ve pasted a message that you may wish to forward to your colleagues below, along with an updated workshop agenda.


See you in Orlando!

Dear colleagues,


I wanted to call your attention to a workshop that I am participating in at the upcoming TAGC meeting on the biology of polyploidy.  The workshop will take place at 4PM on Saturday, July 16th.  It would be great if you and your lab members are able to attend. An agenda is posted below- please share with your labs and any other interested colleagues!
