The Alliance was originally initiated to bring together the large number of quantitative geneticists who work in Edinburgh but are very widely scattered across the university, hospitals and associated institutes.
Originally the Alliance was supported by the Wellcome Trust ISSF through the University of Edinburgh.
Since July 2014 the Alliance has been supported as a Special Interest Group of the Genetics Society. This support will allow us to organise two meetings per year run along the same lines as previously – in particular the meeting will remain free to attend and all are welcome to register and attend.
The next meeting of the Edinburgh Alliance for Complex Trait Genetics will take place in the Autumn, 2020 at the Royal Society of Physicians, Queen St, Edinburgh, starting about lunchtime. As usual the meeting is made possible by generous sponsorship from the Genetics Society.
