    The Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology is proud to host our symposium "Looking in the right direction: Carl Woese and the New Biology" to mark the renaming of our Institute.

    The symposium will highlight not only some of the historical aspects of work on microbiology, evolution and molecular biology as researched by Carl Woese and colleagues, but also some of the most exciting modern research directions that have been inspired or impacted by his work and ideas.

    The scientific program for the event will be held at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

    Quartet-in-residence at the University of Illinois, the Jupiter String Quartet has firmly established itself as an important voice in the world of chamber music. They will be joined in this performance by cellist Denise Djokic, who captivates audiences with her natural musical instinct and remarkable combination of strength and sensitivity. Powerful interpretations, bold command of her instrument, and insightful playing have earned her worldwide recognition. She joins the Jupiter for Schubert’s monumental cello quintet, the last instrumental work the composer wrote.
