7th International Conference of Quantitative Genetics

End Date: July 26, 2024 | 5:00 pm
Location: University of Vienna
We invite you to join us in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria for the seventh International Conference of Quantitative Genetics from 22-26 July 2024.
ICQG7 will bring together researchers with a focus on theory and methodological development. We aim to represent the full range of applications of quantitative genetics – from plants, crops and trees to livestock to humans including common disease, to wild populations and laboratory model species.
The conference provides a forum to highlight novel, principled statistical approaches which may be relevant to the problems faced across a range of applications. In the genomics era the integration of quantitative genetics theory across species applications is converging, and new quantitative trait phenotypes such as single cell gene expression are being studied. This represents an exciting time for understanding and translating the contribution of genetic variation of quantitative traits.
We aim to focus on the presentation and discussion of state-of-the-art results, theoretical developments and new methodologies, and we will prioritise unpublished research. There will be time for discussion after each talk and to foster informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. We will seek a conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide.
The conference is five days long and held in a single location, with the hope of creating lasting collaborations. In addition to invited talks, speakers will be selected from submitted abstracts, and the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages.
