American Society of Human Genetics 2019 Annual meeting abstract submissions open

American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) is holding their 2019 Annual Meeting. Specifically, an abstract topic “Complex Traits and Polygenic Disorders” closely relates to the work BGA members are doing.

The abstract submission site closes June 6, 2019 at 8 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time. Any questions about the process? Contact We’re also happy to provide a video and blog with tips and tricks for abstract submissions.

Our Meeting provides the opportunity to network with 9,000 fellow professionals with a special stake in genetics and genomics. This environment encourages mentoring, collaboration, and discovery! As a preview, we’ve just released our list of invited sessions and workshops, and your members might be interested in the Presidential Symposium, which will feature a discussion on the behavioral science of genetic testing.
