On behalf of the IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence (NM-INBRE), we invite you to the 2013 New Mexico BioInformatics, Science and Technology (NMBIST) Symposium, bringing together different fields in the study of Genome Dynamics.
Now in its ninth year, NMBIST is a paramount educational event for the southwest region, featuring internationally renowned scholars. Throughout the years, our symposium has seen the aggregation in participation increase, particularly among principal investigators, students and university faculty. We anticipate close to 150 registered attendees this year - We hope to see you there!
