CEG Journal Club 19/11: Epistasis in Drosophila quantitative traits

Following the successful first meeting of the CEG Journal Club this year, we will reconvene at 4 pm on Monday 19/11. More speakers wanted for subsequent meetings!!!
Punita Juneja (Jiggins Lab) will present: Huang et al. 2012 “Epistasis dominates the genetic architecture of Drosophila quantitative traits”.

Cambridge Evolutionary Genetics Symposium 11th Jan 2013

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:

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:

Austin Burt, Imperial

Enrico Coen, John Innes Centre

Location: Department of Genetics, Downing Site, Biffen lecture theatre
