The Ecological and Evolutionary Genomics GRC is a premier, international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide, concentrating on the latest developments in the field. The conference is five days long and held in a remote location to increase the sense of camaraderie and create scientific communities, with lasting collaborations and friendships. In addition to premier talks, the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages, and afternoon free time and communal meals allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field.
As genomic information becomes increasingly accessible across model and non-model organisms, evolutionary and ecological genomics have become essential frameworks to understand how mutation processes, selection and drift shape biodiversity and phenotypes. The 2023 Gordon Research Conference on Ecological and Evolutionary Genomics will highlight recent advances in our understanding of interactions between genomes and their environment, covering a variety of scales over space and time from population studies to comparative genomics, deep evolution, and theoretical models. The conference will emphasize how new technologies and models can be leveraged to illuminate evolutionary processes across animals, plants and microbes, and ambitions to spark bold new ideas in the field of genome evolution and ecology.
Co-chairs, Sarah Kocher (Princeton University) and Camille Berthelot (Institut Pasteur, Paris) invite you to Bryant University, where we are assembling a diverse group of established and early career investigators to discuss their latest work across a wide variety of organisms. A subset of the submitted abstracts will be selected for short talk presentations and a limited number of travel grants will be available. Join us to participate in creative discussions in an inclusive social and scientific atmosphere, to empower the future research in the field.
The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include 9 sessions and the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. Please check back regularly for updates to this information.
