General Information

2019 is coincidentally the centenary of both the Genetics Society and the origins of the Roslin Institute and the Institute of Evolutionary Biology, University of Edinburgh.  A joint scientific celebratory meeting will be held from 13-15th November 2019, Edinburgh.

Excellent scientific, public outreach and social programmes are being formulated.

The scientific meeting will focus on the work of prominent scientists who have connections with Edinburgh.

The public outreach programme aims to engage those not necessarily involved with research or science with the contributions that genetic understanding has made to life as we now know it.

The social programme will be centered around networking and fun 🙂

Please check back for more details as they are released, and also to submit abstracts and register.

If you are interested to sponsor any sections of the meeting or social activities, please contact the Genetics Society for more information.
