PAGASIA15-CFPThe Submission Deadline is June 12, 2015.

All PAG Asia participants are invited to submit abstracts for the Poster Session. A Poster Session is a presentation where materials in addition to the abstract—such as genetic maps, physical maps, photographs, graphs, and/or tables— are presented on a display board along with textual summaries of the material.
