'DNA in Forensics 2012' meeting at Innsbruck

In spite of the strange name the materials are all about population genetics, a main interest of mine and this blog, and that's why I mention it.

I'm not sure if all the names mentioned in the full program (PDF) will be partaking (or if it is just the materials to be discussed) but, if so, the meeting will be full of high profile geneticists.

The meeting will take place in September 6-8 at Innsbruck, Austria.

    Oooooh, yoouuu!

    Ya, I don't know if they'll actually be there given that they are having the same presentations in S.F. in the same time frame.
