Symposium on the Genetics of Adaptation

GeneticsOfAdaptation_posterI am pleased to announce a symposium on the genetic bases of adaptation and evolution, co-organized with my colleagues Gaiti Hasan and Krushnamegh Kunte. The meeting (28 Nov – 2 Dec at NCBS) will bring together evolutionary and development biologists, geneticists and theoreticians. Together, we will aim to synthesize current understanding of and future goals for determining the genetic bases of adaptation and evolution. This is an exciting time for such a synthesis!

We have a terrific lineup of speakers, and we hope to have equally amazing contributed talks and posters from advanced PhD students, postdocs, and young faculty. Applications for oral and poster presentations are due by 15 Sep 2016. More information
