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.
