We are currently accepting requests for speakers for the 5th Cambridge Evolutionary Genetics Symposium that will be taking place on Friday, January 11th next year.
The Cambridge Evolutionary Genetics (CEG) network has been set up to foster links between researchers in this field based in different institutions across Cambridge. The talks will cover all areas of evolutionary genetics from comparative genomics to evo-devo, and pathogen evolution to speciation. In previous years speakers have come from the University of Cambridge, the Sanger Institute, EBI, Anglia Ruskin and further afield. The meeting is free to attend and no registration is required.
We are now looking for speakers; if you would be interested in presenting a talk please send a title, brief outline and your affiliation to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The symposia will consist of ten or so 15 minute talks (with five minutes for questions) given by Cambridge researchers, as well as talks from two high profile outside speakers (see below).
We have two confirmed invited speakers:
Location: Department of Genetics, Downing Site, Biffen lecture theatre
The programme from last year to give you an idea of the format can be found here
The Department of Genetics is advertising for a Professor of Genetics, with a strong possibility that this could be someone in the field of Evolutionary or Population Genetics. Get in touch if you are interested.
Thanks Fergal for organising the symposium yesterday, and thanks to all our speakers. It was a great success.
