The 2020 British Meiosis Meeting, organised by Dr James Higgins (Department of Genetics and Genome Biology), aims to gather UK researchers with interests in meiosis, with an emphasis on presentations by postdocs and students and informal discussions between the talks. The meeting will cover all aspects of meiosis, ranging from research into the molecular mechanisms that promote pairing, recombination and chromosome segregation in model organisms to how these events impact on human fertility and crop breeding. This two-day event will provide an excellent forum for PhD students and Postdocs to present their research as an oral and/or poster presentation. Oral presentations will be
selected from submitted abstracts. Students and Postdocs are encouraged to apply!
