General Information

Due to the rapidly escalating global outbreak of COVID-19, the organisers regret to announce the cancellation of TAGC 2020.

TAGC is a unique conference organized by the Genetics Society of America that brings together multiple international biological research communities to foster new collaborations, spark synergies, and strengthen existing relationships.

With a mix of topic-driven and community-specific sessions, TAGC 2020 is designed to shape the big picture and showcase the fundamental unity of biology—all while providing attendees the chance to spend time with old friends and valued colleagues from around the world.

Join us April 22–26, 2020, in the DC Metro region to share your work with colleagues from the C. elegans, Drosophila, mammalian, yeast, Xenopus, zebrafish, and population, evolutionary, and quantitative genetics research communities, along with those researching humans, plants, and agricultural species.

All genetic researchers are encouraged to present at TAGC 2020, regardless of community affiliation.
