Population, Evolutionary, and Quantitative Genetics (PEQG) Community Information

PEQG logo

Meet face-to-face with the PEQG research community at TAGC 2020! The meeting’s unique format offers multiple opportunities for you to share your work, learn about the latest research and tools, build community, and recruit newcomers to the field. Catch up with colleagues at the opening night PEQG mixer and at designated community meeting spots throughout the meeting. We’ll make it easy to spot your community’s people and posters via signage and badges.

Presentation Opportunities

If you submit an abstract, it will be reviewed and scheduled in one of three types of sessions:

  • Posters
  • Community (oral)
  • Thematic (oral)

Poster, Community, and Thematic Sessions will all feature research from the fields of population, evolutionary, and quantitative genetics. There will be plenty to discover and share!

Stay tuned for more information on PEQG programming, and don’t forget to sign up for e-mail reminders!

James F. Crow Early Career Researcher Award

Professor James F. Crow’s contributions to the field of genetics were impactful and innumerable, but he considered his students to be his greatest gift to science. It is in this spirit that the Genetics Society of America presents the James F. Crow Early Career Researcher Award to honor and celebrate Crow’s legacy. Finalists for the Crow Award will present their research in a high-profile PEQG session. The overall winner will be selected by the conference keynote speakers.

To be eligible to apply you must:

  • be a GSA member;
  • be a student or recent PhD (PhD awarded after January 2018);
  • conduct population, evolutionary, or quantitative genetics research;
  • and have submitted an abstract for presentation at TAGC 2020 under the Population, Evolutionary, and Quantitative Genetics category.

More information about application deadlines and materials will be available in Fall 2019.
