The Yeast Genetics Meeting is the premier meeting for students, postdoctoral scholars, research staff, and principal investigators studying various aspects of eukaryotic biology in yeast, a major experimental model for understanding human cell biology and mechanisms of human disease. Over its 40-year history, the conference has featured cutting-edge research spanning a diverse array of topics, including disease models and aging; evolution and population genetics; gene regulation; genomics and systems biology, and more. In addition to an exciting lineup of Invited Speakers, the 2022 meeting will feature abstract-driven Platform and poster sessions and a wide range of professional development and networking events for every career stage.
After meeting virtually at TAGC 2020 Online, we are delighted that this year’s Yeast Genetics Conference will be held in person at the University of California, Los Angeles in beautiful southern California.
We would love to see everyone in Los Angeles, though we realize some may not be able to travel. For those who can’t make it to #Yeast22 at UCLA, virtual registration will offer opportunities to present as well as online access to abstract-driven oral presentations, poster PDFs, professional development events, and more.
