Announcing Registration for the 2016 SMBE Satellite Meeting on The Genetics of Admixed Populations

Dates: May 18-20, 2016

Location:Texas Biomed, San Antonio, TX

The primary goal of this satellite meeting is to emphasize the common theoretical and empirical underpinnings of the study of admixed human populations with the study of hybridization in other animals and even plants, opening up methods and study design from a specific organism to a wider audience. We hope to bridge theoretical and data-driven approaches, starting a discussion on the suitability of methods to various systems and open questions that may be better resolved using an interdisciplinary approach, as well as considering ethical concerns associated with these studies. For more information, please see the registration page.
