Simposio: "Evolutionary Quantitative Genetics in the Wild" (Registro gratis para estudiantes)


The AGA is offering multiple free registration slots to graduate students who submit an abstract for the American Genetic Association Symposium, "Evolutionary Quantitative Genetics in the Wild".

For all others, early registration is $150 and includes receptions, meals,
and complimentary membership in the American Genetic Association with
subscription to Journal of Heredity.

AGA symposia are small, friendly gatherings, and provide wonderful
opportunities for students and researchers to engage with one another and
share their science. This spring's meeting will take place March 23-25,
2018, at the University of Toronto, Canada. It will focus on quantitative
genetics of fitness-related traits in an evolutionary context across
diverse species.

We will open with a reception on Friday night, and our Key Distinguished
Lecturer, Loeske Kruuk, will lead off a full day of talks on Saturday. A
poster session reception is planned for Saturday night. Finally, a half
day of talks will be presented on Sunday.

Registration is open! For all details, visit

Best wishes,

Anne Bronikowski, 2017 AGA President
John Stinchcombe, Local Host and Co-Organizer
