The Population Genetics Group (PGG or PopGroup) is a yearly international meeting held around Christmas in the UK. It covers all aspects of Evolutionary Genetics and a good feel for the typical content can be gained by downloading some of the previous years’ programmes. It is an informal meeting, with typically 200-250 participants, and an excellent place for PhD students to present their work.
The meeting is sponsored annually by the Genetics Society (who also publish the journal Heredity). Discounts are offered to Genetics Society members for sectional interest group meetings such as PopGroup, as well as for subscriptions to Heredity. If you would like to join the Genetics Society to receive a discount please use the following link: http://www.genetics.org.uk/.
Registration for PopGroup49 is still open (until the end of November, or until the meeting is full), but all of the opportunities to give a talk have now been taken, and further abstracts can only be considered for a poster presentation.
