A meeting of the Genetics Society
3rd December 2019
Venue: UCL Institute of Child Health, Guilford Street, London, WC1N 1EH
Organisers: Nick Greene (UCL), Cynthia Andoniadou (KCL), Andy Copp (UCL)
The Mammalian Genetics and Development Workshop is an annual meeting focusing on the development and genetics of mammals. The Meeting is based on the submitted abstracts, and include diverse topics ranging from mammalian development (not exclusively human or mouse) and identification of disease genes and developmental mechanisms, to human genetics and epigenetics. Other model systems (including Drosophila, zebrafish and chick) are also welcomed where these relate to general developmental questions and/or disease models.
The meeting will be similar format to the 29th Meeting in 2018, which had a fantastic set of short talks covering various aspects of developmental biology, mouse models of human disorders and genetics of human disease (abstracts from the 2017 and 2018 meetings are published at https://doi.org/10.1017/S0016672317000076 and https://doi.org/10.1017/S0016672319000016).
The workshop is traditionally a venue for post-docs and PhD students to talk rather than laboratory heads and is an excellent training ground and a friendly, informal forum. In keeping with this objective, we offer TWO PRIZES of £150 to individual post-graduate/post-doctoral presenters. In addition, thanks to the generosity of Mammalian Genome (https://link.springer.com/journal/335) publishers, we will offer an additional PRIZE of £150.
Abstract submission deadline = 8th November.
