Dear ICGI members, 

Per our bylaws, nominations for ICGI co-chairs are now open, closing 1 February.  We will elect co-chairs of each workgroup (Structural Genomics, Functional Genomics, Comparative and Evolutionary Genomics, Germplasm, Bioinformatics) and the co-chair of ICGI overall, with the current co-chairs  ascending to the Chair positions (these will be Richard Percy, Robert Wright, Joshua Udall, Todd Campbell, Peng Chee, and Tianzhen Zhang).

Please send your nominations to me (, including the email address of the person(s) you wish to nominate and the office(s) that you wish to nominate them for.  It would be appreciated if you would check with the prospective nominee first to make sure that s/he is willing to serve, although I will check with them as well. 

Pending any unexpected delays, nominations will CLOSE on 1 Feb, the election will open shortly thereafter (I will provide a link to it then), and the election will CLOSE on 1 March unless an extension is appropriate per our bylaws.

Thank you in advance.

Andrew Paterson, Chair, ICGI
