Dr. Daniel Peterson has been a workshop organizer
at the annual Plant & Animal Genome (PAG)
Conference since 2004. He started as co-organizer of the Reduced Representation
Sequencing Workshop (RRSW) with Andrew H. Paterson (U. of GA) and eventually
became sole RRSW organizer. In 2008, Peterson changed the name of the
RRSW to the Evolution of Genome Size Workshop (EGSW). Peterson
continues as organizer of the EGSW.
