Bridging the gap between theoretical and empirical population genetics

Organised by the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics on October 31 and November 1, 2016, at the campus of Vetmeduni Vienna.

The students of the Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics are proud to announce the fifth MIND THE GAP conference to be held on October 31 and November 1, 2016 at the campus of Vetmeduni Vienna, Austria.

MIND THE GAP aims at bringing together theoretical and empirical population geneticists. This conference is the fifth meeting in a series of conferences held in Freiburg (2009), Plön  (2010), Cologne (2011), and Vienna (2013).

As in these past meetings, there are different main topics for this conference. This year’s themes are:

- Evolutionary inference using time series data
- Adaptive QTLs and their genomic signatures
- Phenotypic plasticity
- Introgression: signatures of selected and neutral alleles

Several invited speakers have already confirmed their attendance:
