Manchester’s Molecular and Genome Evolution Symposium

Manchester’s Molecular and Genome Evolution Symposium (#MaGE2018) is
back again this year on Monday 5th March! Registration and abstract
submission are now open.

MaGE encompasses all aspects of molecular and genome evolution, ranging
from genomic analyses or computational algorithm development, to
molecular ecology, population genetics, and experimental evolution.

MaGE 2018 will be a day-long event in Manchester’s Michael Smith
Building, including a plenary lecture from Mike Brockhurst alongside a
series of contributed talks, and a poster session. The full programme
is currently being put together, but past programmes can be viewed at
the URL below.

MaGE is free to attend, but places are limited so please register at
the URL below, and submit a title if you would like to present a talk
or poster. We are particularly keen to give PhD students and post-docs
a chance to present their work. All contributed talks and posters will
also be considered for a prize, presented at the drinks reception
following the symposium.

For full details, including registration and abstract submission
deadlines, see:

Looking for a place for a small study group? Landmark Trust light bulb moments

These stays will be for small groups of up to 8-10 people for academic purposes: study, discussion, teaching, field study, writing, etc.

Landmark provides the accommodation, including the cost of housekeeping and services; stayers will be responsible for all travel and food costs.
