    2020 Cis Symposium CANCELED

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Crops in silico team has canceled its 2020 gathering. We value the in-person connections and collaborations that are initiated each year at our symposium and workshop, and we believe those would be hard to replicate in an online meeting. So stay tuned: We hope to see you all in 2021!
