Grad student fellowships, short courses for ICQG5 quantitative genetics conference in Madison

The 5th International Conference on Quantitative Genetics (ICQG5) will take place at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison, WI from June 12-17, 2016. This is one of the most important conferences in the area of quantitative genetics in the world and includes research in the area of animal, plants and human genetics.

Thanks to the sponsorship of USDA-NIFA, the ICQG organizing committee is offering a limited number (~40) of fellowships to graduate students working in plant-related quantitative genetics research in the U.S. Fellowships cover the cost of registration to attend the conference.

Four optional short courses are also being offered the week prior to the conference (June 6-10):

  • Applied Plant Genomics and Bioformatics
  • Statistical Genetics of Quantitative Traits and Complex Disease
  • Computational Approaches for Inference and Analysis of Molecular Networks
  • Genomic Selection in the Era of Genome Sequencing.
