Default Genomics and Biodiversity - AGA 2011

The American Genetic Association (AGA) is one of the oldest genetics societies in the US and continues to thrive today as the publisher of the Journal of Heredity. As the 2011 President of the AGA, it’s my great pleasure to invite you to attend and present a poster at our annual meeting, which will be held in the beautiful Spanish colonial town of Guanajuato, Mexico (a World Heritage Site), from July 23-26, 2011.

The theme of this year’s meeting is “Genomics and Biodiversity” and I will be inviting ~25 speakers covering many taxonomic groups from bacteria to humans, as well as methodologies related to this theme. This will be the first time the AGA will be meeting in Mexico, and approximately half of our speakers will be leading researchers working in Mexico. The small size of the meeting maximizes opportunities for interaction and the entire meeting is a single session. We will begin the meeting on July 23rd with a reception at 5pm at the Hotel Camino Real in Guanajuato, where all the meeting speakers will be staying. On the 24th, we will be transported to the nearby town of Irapuato for a day of talks at the Laboratorio Nacional de Genomica para Biodiversidad (LANGEBIO), the spectacular new national laboratory devoted to genomics and biodiversity. We will return to Hotel Camino Real on the evening of the 24th and spend the 25th and 26th in talks in the impressive conference facilities at the hotel, ending on the 26th with an optional banquet. On the 27th you will have the option of joining us on a day-long excursion to take in some of the local biodiversity and also to visit the equally stunning colonial town of San Miguel de Allende.

We sincerely hope you can accept our invitation to this landmark event!
