We have three exciting plenary speakers:

  • Assistant Professor Uma Ramakrishnan, a molecular ecologist at the National Centre for Biological Sciences, who studies the population genetics and evolutionary history of mammals on the Indian subcontinent.

Our 2021 GSA Award Winners will be showcasing their exciting research. Additionally, we will have sessions on Conservation and Ecological Genetics, Developmental Genetics, Earth BioGenome, Ecological and Evolutionary Genetics, Epigenetics and Chromatin Structure, Functional Genomics in Rare Disease, Genomics and Transcriptomics, and Mobile Genetic Elements.  

We look forward to seeing you at GSA2021!
