Research Workshops

Outreach to Research Scientists


The Center's annual workshops were designed to maximize information and resource exchange between different disciplines and communities related to systems genetics. The number of participants was deliberately kept small to facilitate interaction. Previous meetings have included:

Mouse Evolutionary Genetics Meeting

June 18-19, 2009

House Mouse“The house mouse: a model for evolutionary genetics and the study of complex traits”. The central theme of this meeting was the development of the house mouse as a model for evolutionary genetics, including the study of complex traits, phenotypic evolution, and genetic variation.
