2018 Population, Evolutionary, and Quantitative Genetics Conference May 13–16, 2018 | Madison, Wisconsin

Following the momentum of the highly successful #PEQG16 (held at GSA’s The Allied Genetics Conference), the 2018 Population, Evolutionary, and Quantitative Genetics Conference (#PEQG18) brings together population, evolutionary, and quantitative geneticists to promote cross-disciplinary exchange between those doing theoretical and experimental work in these broad but overlapping fields.

Topics will span the diversity of PEQG, including:

  • Theoretical population genetics
  • Molecular evolution
  • Quantitative and complex traits
  • Population genomics
  • Experimental evolution
  • Adaptation and ecological genetics
  • Statistical genetics
  • Genome evolution
  • Speciation
  • and more!

PEQG is for everyone. Early career scientists, including postdocs and students, will benefit from networking events, career and publishing workshops, and other career development initiatives developed by the GSA. #PEQG18 will also feature a session dedicated to finalists for the James F. Crow Early Career Researcher Award.

Please note the date and location have changed. The conference will be held in the vibrant lakeside city of Madison, Wisconsin, May 13-16, at the Madison Concourse Hotel.

You can read a report from #TAGC16 at G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics and browse videos of some of the presentations (filter by Community > PEQG).

Catherine (Katie) Peichel is a Professor in the Institute of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Bern, Switzerland. Prior to that, she was a Full Member at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. She is broadly interested in identifying the genetic and molecular mechanisms that underlie evolutionary processes, using stickleback fish as a model system. Her current research is focused on the genetic and genomic basis of adaptation and speciation, the genetic and neural mechanisms that underlie behavioral evolution, and the evolution of sex chromosomes.
