11th Annual Arthropod Genomics Symposium (AGS)

Welcome to the 11th Annual Arthropod Genomics Symposium website.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is pleased to host the Arthropod Genomics Symposium, Thursday to Saturday, June 7-9, 2018.  It has been 18 years since the sequencing of the genome of Drosophila melanogaster, and over three hundred arthropod genomes have been sequenced since then.  The Arthropod Genomics Symposium is an opportunity to reflect on recent progress and explore future directions.

We have planned an array of sessions that reflect the diversity of arthropod genomics.  We hope you will join us for a productive exchange of ideas and viewpoints, and we look forward to seeing you here.

Hugh Robertson and Gene Robinson, co-chairs
