Presentation Opportunities

Abstracts have been reviewed and scheduled in one of three types of sessions:

  • Posters
  • Community (oral)
  • Thematic (oral)

If you submitted an abstract, see the Author Assignments page to view your assignment. 

Abstracts submitted in the following categories have been reviewed by the PEQG Program Committee, not by the organism-specific community committees.

Evolutionary and Population Genetics
Adaptation and natural selection
Experimental evolution
Comparative genomics
Phylogenetics and biogeography
Population history
Ecological genetics
Response to climate change

Quantitative Genetics
Gene-environment interactions
Gene-gene interaction (epistasis)
Genomic selection/prediction
Complex trait genetics
Statistical genetics methods

Poster, Community, and Thematic Sessions will all feature research from the fields of population, evolutionary, and quantitative genetics. There will be plenty to discover and share!
