60th Annual Drosophila Research Conference

Genetics Society of America

March 27–31, 2019 | Dallas, TX

Join us in celebrating 60 years of buzz! The 60th Annual Drosophila Research Conference is the premier meeting for Drosophila researchers. Share your research with the fruit fly community and learn about the latest results and techniques. As many as 1,000 presentations cover the full diversity of Drosophila investigations, from genetics to molecular biology, cell biology, development, immunology, physiology, neuroscience, evolution, and more.

Early career scientists, including postdocs and students, will benefit from networking events, professional development and publishing workshops, poster review opportunities, and other initiatives designed by the Genetics Society of America to prepare attendees for success during their training and careers.
