GMOD Malaysia 2014 is made possible by the extremely generous support of National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) 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.
