PopGenLunch folks --

We're off and running! Tomorrow Mike Dorrity of the Queitsch Lab in
the Department of Biology (wait a second, isn't that lab in Genome
Sciences?) will be our speaker, on

"Encoding the decision to mate or invade in a single yeast transcription factor"

As usual this quarter, not on the first floor but in the downstairs
small seminar room opposite the elevator, S040. And as usual, from
12:30 -- 1:30pm.
