GMOD Malaysia 2014 is made possible by the extremely generous support
of National
Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) <http://nescent.org/> (
http://nescent.org) and the NESCent Ambassador program. NESCent promotes
the synthesis of information, concepts and knowledge to address
significant, emerging, or novel questions in evolutionary science and its
applications. NESCent supports research and education across disciplinary,
institutional, geographic, and demographic boundaries. The NESCent
Ambassador Program is NESCent’s primary international outreach program, and
is supported by a three-year grant from the NSF. GMOD is very grateful to
be a beneficiary of this generous program.
