Organization

The Insect Genetic Technologies Research Coordination Network is an organization of volunteers. Insect scientists interested in becoming involved in any of the activities of the IGTRCN or have ideas about how the IGTRCN can better serve the insect science community and fulfill its mission are encouraged to contact the Director or any member of the Steering Committee.
