EGGS 2018

The Evolutionary Genetics and Genomics Symposium is an annual meeting, now sponsored by the Genetics Society as a Sectional Interest Group.


Date: Tuesday 20th March 2018

Location: Biffen lecture theatre Department of Genetics, Downing Street Site (map here). Please email if you have further questions.

Travel: The symposium is a 20min walk from the train station. There is a rail and bus link to Cambridge from Stansted airport, and London Kings Cross is ~one hour away on the train. Parking in Cambridge is expensive and there is a lot of traffic, if you are driving we would recommend the park and ride

Accommodation: If you need B & B accommodation a couple of cheap and fairly central options are College Rooms or the travel lodge by the train station
