The deadline to submit talks and posters is October 25th 2020. Selected abstracts will be announced by November 7th. Since this Edition of #Mexpopgen will take place online, talks should be recorded previously and send to organizers by the 5th of December. Similarly, participants presenting posters should send them to the organizers before such date in PDF format. Registration is free and will remain open until the 5th of December 2020 or until we have reached the maximum capacity of participants.

#mexpopgen 5 se pospone

Estimada comunidad MEXPOPGEN,

Ante la emergencia mundial del Coronavirus (COVID-19) y el reporte de casos infectados en México, hemos decidido que la quinta edición del Mexico Population Genomics Meeting (#mexpopgen5), que se llevaría a cabo el 22 de mayo del 2020, queda pospuesto para septiembre, tentativamente en la misma sede.

El registro seguirá abierto y la fecha límite para la recepción de trabajos se pospondrá hasta hasta el 14 de agosto, 2020. Asimismo, les informamos que en caso de ya haber enviado un resumen en una fecha previa a este anuncio, tienen la opción de actualizar su resumen hasta antes de la fecha límite.

Lamentamos si ésta decisión ocasiona algún imprevisto, pero ante las predicciones epidemiológicas, es imprescindible actuar de forma preventiva e implementar medidas que permitan asegurar el bienestar de toda la comunidad del MEXPOPGEN5. 

Si deseas conocer mayor información sobre el estado de los casos reportados en México consulta el aviso epidemiológico emitido por la Unidad de Inteligencia Epidemiológica y Sanitaria (UIES) de la Dirección General de Epidemiología.

Quedamos a tu disposición para cualquier pregunta y/o comentario que surga.

#mexpopgen 5 is postponed

Dear MEXPOPGEN community,

Given the worldwide emergence of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the cases reported in Mexico, we have decided that the fifth edition of the Mexico Population Genomics Meeting (#mexpopgen5), which would take place on 22 May 2020, is postponed to September, tentatively at the same venue.

Registration will remain open and the submission deadline will be postponed until August 14, 2020. Please note that if you have already submitted an abstract before this announcement, you have the option to update your abstract before the deadline. We apologize if this decision causes any unforeseen events, but given the epidemiological predictions, it is essential to act preventively and implement measures to ensure the welfare of the entire MEXPOPGEN5 community. For more information on the status of reported cases in Mexico, please consult the epidemiological advisory issued by the Epidemiological and Health Intelligence Unit (UIES) of the General Administration of Epidemiology. We are available to you for any questions and/or comments you may have.

Stay healthy and positive.

English – #mexpopgen4 January 11th 2019 @ CU UNAM, Mexico City

We are pleased to announce that the fourth edition of the Mexico Population Genomics Meeting (#mexpopgen4) will be held on January 11, 2019 at the School of Sciences at UNAM in beautiful Central University City Campus, a UNESCO’s World Heritage Site.

After three successful editions of mexpopgen, we invite the scientific community of Mexico with interest in the area of population genetics to meet once more in a relaxed and friendly environment to share the progress of their research

The event is open to the scientific community, but registration is mandatory as space is limited. The program will consist of three talk sessions and one poster session, followed by a networking activity. Those interested in presenting in either of the two modalities must indicate so in the registration sheet and submit an abstract using the online form.

The deadline for registration is January 4, 2019, though we usually reach capacity before the deadline, hence early registration is encouraged.

Organizing committee: Alicia Mastretta @AliciaMstt (CONABIO), Andrés Moreno @morestrada (LANGEBIO), Azalea Guerra UNAM), Idalia Rojas @yetze07  (UNAM), Karla Sandoval @lan_KarlaSM (LANGEBIO), María Ávila @paleogenomics (LIIGH) y Victor Acuña @gm_enah (ENAH).
