Come to AGA2015! — August 17-20, 2015 

The AGA President, Catherine Peichel, hosts this year's Symposium at beautiful IslandWood on Bainbridge Island, WA.

The meeting will bring together people working on both molecular and evolutionary aspects of chromosome evolution to stimulate exchange of ideas between scientists with different perspectives. The meeting will start with a reception on the evening of August 17, followed by two full days of talks, and conclude with breakfast on the morning of August 20. Mark Kirkpatrick will present the Key Distinguished Lecture on the theory surrounding chromosome evolution.

Shared housing, shared meals, and sharing ideas!

Confirmed speakers

General registration is now closed.  Further details on the schedule, posters, and venue will be available soon!

Editor's Choice Free Access

In this issue: Problems and Cautions With Sequence Mismatch Analysis and Bayesian Skyline Plots to Infer Historical Demography. Invited Review from Stewart Grant. Coupling population history with climate change is essential for constructing evolutionary and biogeographic scenarios that illuminate the mechanisms shaping species’ diversity.

But molecular clocks calibrated with phylogenetic divergences can overestimate the timings of population-level events. Overestimates disconnect historical population reconstructions from climatic history and confound our understanding of the factors influencing genetic variability.
