The biennial Fungal Genetics Conference is the premier meeting for the international community of fungal geneticists. The conference features cutting-edge research spanning a diverse array of topics, including comparative and functional genomics, gene regulation, cell biology, biochemistry and metabolism, population and evolutionary genetics, host-pathogen interactions, genetics education, and more. In addition, network with the premiere fungal geneticists and forge new collaborations.
Attendees gather to learn about and present the latest research in fungal genetics and develop academic and industry relationships. The meeting consists of plenary and concurrent sessions, 700 posters and workshops that highlight new developments and techniques. By exhibiting at this meeting you will expand your visibility and gain access to current and future customers in a collegial atmosphere.
The meeting will be returning to Asilomar Conference Grounds. The meeting is limited to 900 attendees and has sold out for the last four meeting. The exhibits will have a dedicated audience because they will be held with the poster sessions Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. Don't miss out on this opportunity.

About the GSA:
The Genetics Society of America (GSA), founded in 1931, is the professional membership organization for scientific researchers and educators in the field of genetics. Our members work to advance knowledge in the basic mechanisms of inheritance, from the molecular to the population level.
GSA is dedicated to promoting research in genetics and to facilitating communication among geneticists worldwide including through its scholarly journals, GENETICS and G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics, and professional conferences—such as those that focus on the genetics of many of the leading model organisms including C. elegans, Drosophila, fungi, mice, yeast, and zebrafish.
This is a biennial meeting.
