First Annual NESCent Symposium
Co-Sponsored by the Center for Evolutionary Genomics

Darwin Day 2007: Evolution and Genomes
Monday, February 12, 2007

The first NESCent Symposium focuses on evolutionary biologists from the participating Triangle Universities, and has the title of "Evolution and Genomics". Advances in genomics have revolutionized many aspects of biology, and have had a huge impact on evolutionary biology. In this year's symposium we will investigate a number of issues of genomics, evolutionary biology, and general biology, in keeping with NESCent's mission of broad synthesis in evolutionary biology. The event is co-sponsored by the Center for Evolutionary Genetics of the Duke University Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy.

Please join us on February 12 from 1-5pm for our first annual symposium, followed by a reception at 5pm. The symposium and reception are open to all, although we do request that you register at register@nescent.org for planning purposes.
