General Information

PopGroup55 is taking place from 05 – 07 January, 2022, and will be a virtual event with a twist!

This year’s organisers – the Earlham Institute, John Innes Centre, and the University of East Anglia – are creating a covid and climate conscious conference.

Following the success of Liverpool hosting the first ever virtual meet in 2021, the Norwich-led conference will take a distributed approach. We are supporting attendees to arrange local meet-ups – keeping the community spirit of PopGroup alive across the UK.


The Population Genetics Group (Popgroup) meets annually and is hosted at alternating locations throughout the UK.  The meeting name was established in the 1960s, but today’s topics include most areas of evolutionary genetics and genomics.  The Previous Meetings page gives information about common topics.
