Conference: Quantitative Genomics 2015 (QG15) on May 29, 2015 in London

Quantitative Genomics 2015 (QG15), a conference for students in quantitative genomics that will take place on Friday 29th of May at the Wellcome Trust Headquarters at Euston square in the very heart of London.

The conference will focus on giving early-career researchers (Master’s and PhD students) working at the forefront of mathematical and quantitative genomics a chance to present their work and learn from their peers. The conference will feature talks by Professor Brian Charlesworth from the University of Edinburgh and Nicole Soranzo from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. Our renowned speakers represent the two sides of the spectrum of topics QG15 aims for: from evolutionary theory and mathematical models to new omics tools applied in biomedical research. It will provide an ideal opportunity to build international networks with current and future leaders in the field in an informal and relaxed environment. Registration costs have been kept to a minimum to ensure that QG15 is accessible to all interested students.

Please refer to the QG15 website for more information and do not hesitate to contact us for further information (quantgen’at’ We encourage you to pre-register (open now) so we can keep you updated regarding deadlines and steps for abstract submission and registration.

We hope to see you in London,
