About TAGC

TAGC is a unique conference organized by the Genetics Society of America that gives you both topic-driven and community-specific sessions to foster collaboration and inspire fresh thinking.

Join us April 22–26, 2020, in the DC Metro region and use #TAGC20 to join the conversation on social media!

What is TAGC?

Find new directions where biological research communities converge. You can share your work with colleagues from the C. elegans, Drosophila, mammalian, Xenopus, yeast, zebrafish, and population, evolutionary, and quantitative genetics research communities—along with other researchers studying humans, plants, and agricultural species. All genetic researchers are encouraged to present at TAGC 2020, regardless of community affiliation.

Thematic Sessions bring the communities together around unifying themes.

Unique professional development opportunities help you connect and make the most of your conference experience. If you need funding support, awards and financial aid can help offset the costs of travel and childcare.

TAGC 2020 is organized by dedicated members of the GSA community. We hope you’ll join us at this exciting event in the Washington, DC region on April 22–26, 2020.

Opportunities to connect

  • Student and postdoc GSA members can invite poster viewers.
  • Find collaborators in industry or academia.
  • Learn about industry careers.

Looking for travel or childcare funding?

Undergrad, grad student, and postdoc GSA members from any country can apply for travel awards. Any GSA member can apply for a TAGC Childcare Grant to help offset the cost of childcare for parents attending TAGC.

I was able to network with scientists from across the globe and share my research in an impactful way. I also was awarded an honorable mention on my poster and met three Nobel Prize winners, which would not have been possible without GSA’s support.
