A symposium on the ”Genetics of Migration" will be held at the Max Planck Institute of Evolutionary Biology (Plön, Germany) in spring 2017 (April 4th-7th).

The aim of the symposium is to bring together a multi-disciplinary group of scientists working on the ecology, genomics, epigenetics, evolutionary theory and biostatistics of animal migration. The development of next generation sequencing technology and improvements in tracking the movement of migratory species is certain to advance this field of science in the coming years so now is an excellent time to synthesize what we currently understand about the genetic basis of migration as well as highlight future avenues of research. The symposium will be based on a series of talks, posters, workshops and discussions and will encompass a wide range of migratory taxa including birds, fish and insects.

Further details including registration information can be found at https://genmig.wordpress.com/ (please note that the number of participants is limited to 50)

 

And of course the Gordon Conference: Movement Ecology of Animals

Date: 19-24 March, 2017
Location: Four Points Sheraton / Holiday Inn Express Ventura, CA.
