Manchester Molecular and Genome Evolution Symposium

Registration and abstract submission are now open for Manchester’s Molecular and Genome Evolution Symposium (#MaGE2016) on Monday 20th June!

As in previous years, the remit of the symposium is broad, including all aspects of molecular and genome evolution, ranging from genomic analyses or computational algorithm development, to molecular ecology, population genetics, and experimental evolution (see

MaGE 2016 will be a day-long event in Manchester¹s Michael Smith Building including two plenary lectures, a series of contributed talks, and a poster session. Plenary lectures will be given by Mary O’Connell (who has recently set up a Computational & Molecular Evolutionary Biology Group at the University of Leeds: and Jonas Warringer (known for his work on genotype-phenotype relationships at the University of Gothenberg, see his publication list).

MaGE is free to attend, but places are limited so please register at 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.
