Population, Evolutionary, and Quantitative Genetics Conference
homePopulation, Evolutionary, and Quantitative Genetics Conference
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
Quantitative and complex traits
Adaptation and ecological genetics

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.
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
