Quantitative evolution school in Okinawa, 2010

At the winter school I'm at in Japan, I've just learned of an interesting summer school they will be having here next year in May:

Quantitative Evolutionary and Comparative Genomics.

It will be at OIST in Okinawa May 24 to June 4, 2010.

The theme is ultra-conserved sequences:
The theme of the 2010 Summer School is the phenomenon of strong (or extreme) sequence conservation, which will be explored from a quantitative and multidisciplinary perspective, and connections forged with parts of biology outside of genomics.
Students can apply to have all travel and accommodation costs covered. Application deadline is February 15.
