2018 Special Event Award Winners

The AGA grants awards each year to members to support special events that further the purposes of the Association, particularly to encourage student participation.  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.

The AGA Council is pleased to announce the recipients of this year
