Registered participants will have access to whole genome sequence data, obtained on the Illumina platform, from numerous species of tropical tree, primarily in the genus Ficus (figs) and the family Fagaceae (tropical oaks).  Genome coverage ranges from 3x to 20x, with most averaging 10x.  Confirmed participants include Jeffrey Boore, David Galbraith, Ruan Jue, Mike Arnold, Yann Surget-Groba, Lang Tiange, and Chuck Cannon.

Prior to the workshop, a set of draft questions and protocols will be shared through Google Docs, allowing participants to become familiar with the overall objectives of the workshop, to improve the questions, and suggest new ones. Registered participants can also choose to lead specific topics from the agenda below or suggest their own topics.  We will be providing a more detailed agenda by the end of January, 2011.  We will also develop criteria for inclusion of participants as co-authors on manuscripts that are developed during the workshop.
