In July of 2016 the first joint meeting for researchers in Population, Evolutionary and Quantitative Genetics was held and received an overwhelmingly
positive response from attendees.
The PEQG conference 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 population
genomics, theoretical population genetics, quantitative and complex traits, molecular evolution, 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, presentation and poster review opportunities, and other initiatives designed by GSA.
You can read a report from the 2016 conference at G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics and browse videos of some of the presentations (filter by Community > PEQG to
see talks from only the Population, Evolutionary, & Quantitative Genetics sessions).
