The remit of the symposium is broad, including all aspects of molecular and genome evolution, including method development, molecular ecology, population genetics and experimental evolution.
This will be a day-long event consisting of two plenary lectures, a series of contributed talks, and a poster session. Plenary lectures this year will be given by Adam Eyre-Walker (Sussex University http://www.lifesci.susx.ac.uk/home/Adam_Eyre-Walker/Website/Welcome.html ), on “The role of recombination and mutation in the adaptive process” and Ashleigh Griffin (University of Oxford,http://www.zoo.ox.ac.uk/group/griffin/ ) on “The Behavioural Ecology of Bacteria Causing Infections”.
We are now inviting abstracts for talks: see https://manchestermage.wordpress.com for details. Deadline for submission of Talk titles and abstracts: Thursday 14th May
MaGE is free to attend, but places are limited so please register soon (from the website above) 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.
