57th Annual Drosophila Research Conference - Genetics Society Of America


Event Overview:

The Annual Drosophila Research Conference is the preeminent meeting for Drosophila researchers.  From students and trainees to PIs and Faculty, there is something for everyone.  Nearly 1,000 abstracts are submitted each year and over 150 are selected for platform presentations ranging from model organisms to human disease to cell biology, pattern formation and more. In addition there are over a dozen plenary sessions that are varied in scope.  Trainees can also benefit from the experience as there are several sessions that can help them with their career search, presentation skills, grant writing, and much more.  Workshops on other topics of interest are also held in conjunction with the conference.  The Annual Drosophila Research Conference is an opportunity to learn about the latest research, network with colleagues and share your scientific findings.

This Meeting is part of 2016 - The Allied Genetics Conference

Bringing Genetics Together:

    Unique jamboree of seven genetics and model organism communities
    Access to a wide range of scientific sessions, networking opportunities, and more
    Cross-cutting keynote sessions, workshops, and posters
    Celebration of 100th anniversary of journal GENETICS
    Affordable and accessible to all career stages

The Allied Genetics Conference (TAGC) is a meeting that, for the first time, brings together seven different genetics research communities for a one of a kind event. The conference will be held at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida. Each of the following communities, C. elegans, ciliates, drosophila, PEQ, yeast and zebrafish will hold their regular meeting but will also have the advantage of being able to attend sessions offered by the other communities. Register for one and have access to all! The conference provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge science in the area of model organism research. TAGC is expected to attract over 3,000 scientific attendees, over 100 exhibiting companies and the attention of the media.

Exhibitor Information:

The Genetics Society of America (GSA) brings you thousands of customers each year along with cutting-edge science, networking opportunities, world-class poster sessions, and so much more at our many conferences. TAGC 2016 will bring together six model organism communities along with a new focal area in Population, Evolutionary and Quantitative Genetics giving you a unique opportunity to connect with many communities at one show.  Combined attendance at the most recent meetings numbers over 4,000.  So instead of exhibiting multiple times, you can address a wider audience by attending just one show - TAGC 2016! TAGC 2016 will be held at the Orlando World Center Marriott, July 13-17, 2016 (offical exhibit dates July 13-16).  The exhibit hall will also be home to nearly 2,500 posters, so your booth will see thousands of potential customers.

Show attendees your innovation, ingenuity, and imagination!
