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).

 

Español – mexpopgen4 11 de enero 2018 @ Ciudad Universitaria CDMX

Nos complace anunciar que la cuarta edición del Mexico Population Genomics Meeting (#mexpopgen4) se llevará a cabo el 11 de enero de 2019 en la Facultad de Ciencias de la UNAM en la bella Ciudad Universitaria, Patrimonio de la Humanidad.

Después de tres exitosas ediciones previas, convocamos nuevamente a la comunidad científica de México con interés en el área de genética de poblaciones a reunirse en un ambiente relajado y ameno para compartir los avances de sus investigaciones.

El evento es abierto a la comunidad científica, pero el registro es obligatorio ya que el espacio es limitado. El programa consistirá en tres sesiones de charlas y una sesión de pósters, seguido de una actividad de socialización como ya es costumbre. Aquellos interesados en presentar en cualquiera de las dos modalidades deberán indicarlo en la hoja de registro y enviar un abstract usando el formulario en línea.

La fecha límite de registro es el viernes 4 de enero del 2019, aunque se recomienda registrarse con anticipación ya que en ediciones previas se ha llegado al límite de participantes antes de la fecha límite.

Save the date! Aparta la fecha! #mexpopgen4

Tenemos el gusto de anunciar la fecha y lugar del próximo Mexico Population Genomics Meeting! La cuarta edición de este encuentro académico tendrá lugar en Ciudad Universitaria en la Ciudad de México el día 11 de enero de 2019. Pronto publicaremos más información, por lo pronto no olvides apartar la fecha en el calendario!

We are pleased to announce that we have set the date and venue for the next Mexico Population Genomics Meeting! The fourth edition of this one-day meeting will take place at University City UNAM campus in Mexico City on January 11th 2019. More info to follow shortly but don’t forget to mark your calendars in the mean time.

 

Gracias for a wonderful #mexpopgen3

We are very thrilled to say that #mexpopgen3 was a huge success! This was only possible to all of you who attended the meeting, shared your work, exchanged ideas with colleagues, discussed potential future collaborations, and engaged in this networking event with much enthusiasm. BIG THANK YOU!

We were fortunate to have a great program and a fully booked event with participants from all over Mexico, from Morelia to Mérida, and even participants who came all the way from California, Denmark, Switzerland and Sweden. Thanks also to all participants from the press and industry who joined us at LANGEBIO.

We owe a special thanks to Biotech del Norte and SICES Guanajuato for their kind support, which allowed us to cover lunch, coffee breaks, beers, as well as transportation and accommodation for some speakers. This was also possible thanks to the great organizational work by the outreach office at LANGEBIO, led by Karla Sandoval, and by the volunteer work of students and postdocs from the Moreno Lab.

We are already looking forward to an even better #mexpopgen4 in 2019; we are aware that the bar was set too high this year,  hence we would welcome any feedback and comments to improve. While we are still defining the next venue, we welcome all suggestions and any person interested in being part of the organizing committee is more than welcome to take part in this rewarding experience of organizing such a wonderful get-togheter.

We wish you the most successful 2018 and look forward to seeing you all next year at #mexpopgen4!!
