Yeast Genetics Meeting

August 22–26, 2018 | Stanford, CA

Thanks for a great #Yeast18! The next meeting will be held in the Metro Washington, DC area April 22–26, 2020, at The Allied Genetics Conference.

The Yeast Genetics Meeting (#Yeast18) will be held August 22–26, 2018 at Stanford University in Stanford, California. This is the premier meeting for anyone studying eukaryotic biology using the powerful experimental model Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Oral presentations are selected by the organizers from the submitted abstracts. The meeting provides a valuable forum for graduate students and postdocs to present their research to an international audience.

We are pleased to announce the following awards and lectures will be presented at the meeting:

  • Lee Hartwell Lecture: Fred Winston, Harvard Medical School
  • Ira Herskowitz Award: Mike Cherry, Stanford University
  • Lifetime Achievement Award: Steve Oliver, University of Cambridge
  • Winge-Lindegren Address: Virginia Zakian, Princeton University
  • Special Presentation: David Botstein, Calico
  • GSA George W. Beadle Award: Phil Hieter, University of British Columbia

Plan now to join us and hundreds of yeast researchers at Stanford University for this exciting four-day meeting. Present your research, re-connect with peers, and generate new approaches to your work.
