Watch presentations from the conference, including talks from Katie Peichel and Jonathan Pritchard.
Now that the dust has settled from the whirlwind of the first ever standalone GSA Population, Evolutionary, and Quantitative Genetics Conference (PEQG18), we’re delighted to be able to share the audio and synched slides from the Keynote and Crow Award sessions.
We’re gratified too that attendees got so much of value from the conference. Many have approached GSA staff and the conference organizers with rave reviews of their experience, and, despite the usual growing pains of a new conference, the results from the attendee survey have also been overwhelmingly positive.
We’re excited to incorporate some of the lessons we’ve learned into planning the next PEQG. It will be held April 22–26, 2020 in the metro Washington, DC, area at The Allied Genetics Conference (TAGC20). PEQG will join the C. elegans, Drosophila, mouse, Xenopus, yeast, and zebrafish research communities for a mix of community-specific and cross-community sessions.
Stay tuned for more announcements on the upcoming conference and for several more PEQG18 blog reports in the coming weeks. Enjoy the talks below!
