Thus, participants will use computational resources that are available to all U.S. researchers. Workshop leaders will be Drs. Brant Faircloth (LSU), Travis Glenn (UGA), and Natalia Bayona Vasquez (Emory). Additional trainers will include PhD students in Bioinformatics and Environmental Health Science at the University of Georgia. Click here for more information  or REGISTER HERE.  Workshops will be online from 9am-noon Alaska time
