The Allied Genetics Conference Online

Join the Population, Evolutionary, and Quantitative Genetics (PEQG) community, plus six model organism research communities at TAGC 2020 Online! This live virtual conference will take place April 22–25, 2020. Registration is free, but you must register in advance.

Plant Genetics Highlights at TAGC

Although we were disappointed to cancel the in-person meeting, we are delighted to have found an alternative way for our communities to exchange ideas and share the latest research. Just as in the original TAGC 2020 format, cross-community thematic sessions will alternate with community-specific sessions dedicated to particular model organisms and disciplines. But at TAGC Online, talks and posters will be presented in a virtual and interactive format. 

We’re expecting researchers from all areas, including plant, agricultural, and human genetics, to join our seven participating communities. Join us for sessions on quantitative genetics, evolution, gene regulation and epigenetics, development, and new technology.

Caroline Dean

Keynote Speaker Caroline Dean leads mechanistic studies aimed at understanding the molecular events behind the cold-induced silencing and epigenetic switching of an Arabidopsis gene called FLC, which is central to the vernalization process.

Ed Buckler

Keynote Speaker Ed Buckler developed association mapping approaches and germplasm to pinpoint genes and find natural variation controlling many maize traits. His group has also developed a wide range of tools that have been used to characterize and tap diversity in over 2,000 species.

Population, Evolutionary, and Quantitative Genetics (PEQG)

Don’t miss the highly anticipated PEQG sessions at TAGC! The program includes an exciting invited speaker program, abstract-driven sessions, and the Crow Award session, featuring finalists for the 2020 James F. Crow Award for Early Career Researchers.
