You are invited to the 2016 Mouse Genetics Conference, a joint meeting of the International Mammalian Genome Society (IMGS) and the Mouse Molecular Genetics (MMG) meeting, that is part of The Allied Genetics Conference sponsored by the Genetics Society of America (GSA). Over the past 30 years, these two groups have provided an international forum for the sharing of cutting-edge research in genetics and genomics that addresses fundamental areas of mammalian biology.
In addition to joint sessions covering multiple model systems as part of the larger meeting, leaders in mouse genetics will present unpublished research findings during the plenary sessions. Other established and junior investigators, including trainees, will present their work during platform and poster sessions. Trainees will benefit from career development sessions, including the opportunity to participate in a Trainee Oral Symposium preceding the main conference, compete for presentation awards, and gain career advice over a mentoring lunch with leaders in the field. An optional Bioinformatics Workshop will be led by investigators developing tools for large-scale genomics analysis. The meeting will provide a stimulating environment for the exchange of ideas and information, and encourage the development of relationships key to future collaborations.
You won't want to miss this meeting where you can build relationships that are key to future collaborations.

When considering the cost/benefit of registering, remember that face-to-face meetings is the most effective forum to network, share research and form collaborations.
For Visa Purposes Customized letters of invitation can only be issued to individuals who have submitted an abstract or to confirmed registrants (those who have paid the meeting registration fees).
The Allied Genetics Conference (TAGC) takes place at the Orlando World Center Marriott.
The Allied Genetics Conference (TAGC) is a meeting that, for the first time, brings together seven different genetics research communities for a one of a kind event.
