Your submission will be reviewed based on the primary topic you select and the primary organism used. If your abstract is not selected for a talk in a Thematic Session, it may be selected for a talk in a Community Session.
For example, let’s say your abstract relates to New Technology and Resources in C. elegans. In this case the C. elegans Program Committee will have three options:
Note that any abstracts with a primary topic of population, evolutionary, or quantitative genetics will be reviewed by the PEQG Program Committee. These abstracts will be considered for talks in PEQG Community Sessions or Thematic Sessions, but will not be considered for organism-specific Community Sessions. Abstracts with a primary topic of neurogenetics will be reviewed by the Neurogenetics Committee. These abstracts will be considered for talks in the thematic sessions, and not for organism-specific Community Sessions.
Abstracts selected for a presentation will be available online by February 15, 2024, which will be considered the official publication date. The full abstract text will only be available online and as a printable PDF.
