Molecular and Genome Evolution (MaGE) symposium, Manchester, 15th June 2015.

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.
