Eligible events include specialized workshops, short courses in some aspect of organismal genetics, and meetings in areas of great current interest, but any event that would advance the purpose of the Association is eligible for support.

AGA Member Benefits

Watch for an announcement about changes to AGA membership

We are moving to direct member management  through the AGA website, instead of by Journal of Heredity’s publisher, Oxford University Press.  Going forward, we hope to be able to offer a much more interactive platform and faster, more personal communication with our members.

Information on how to become a member for 2020 will be available in early November.
