In 2020, the Population, Evolutionary, and Quantitative Genetics (PEQG) Conference will be held at TAGC, in the Metro Washington, DC area. Join the PEQG community for this popular gathering, and take advantage of many opportunities to present to and network with scientists from six other model organism research communities. You won’t want to miss it!
At PEQG 2020, you’ll get the benefits of a community meeting, with many opportunities for a broader audience. Joining PEQG will be community meetings of C. elegans, Drosophila, mammalian genetics, Xenopus, yeast, and zebrafish researchers. Cross-community Thematic Sessions will alternate with Community Sessions. Communities will also come together for Keynote Sessions, including talks by Cassandra Extavour (Harvard University) and Sally Otto (University of British Columbia).
Hurry, abstracts are due December 13, 2019!
