2024 Fungal Genetics Conference

March 12 - March 17

Hybrid Hybrid Event

The 2024 Fungal Genetics Conference, the premier meeting for fungal genetics researchers, will be held 12-17 March 2024 in Pacific Grove, California

The Fungal Genetics Conference is the premier meeting for the international community of fungal geneticists. The conference features cutting-edge research spanning a diverse array of topics, including comparative and functional genomics, gene regulation, cell biology, biochemistry and metabolism, population and evolutionary genetics, host-pathogen interactions, genetics education, and more.

This is considered by many to be the pre-eminent meeting in this area and promotes interaction between researchers interested in medical pathogens, plant pathogens, saprobic fungi and symbiotic fungi.

  • Highlighted topics and sessions include:
  • Functional genomics illuminates foundational biology and evolution
  • New technologies to understand and control antifungal resistance
  • Multilevel regulatory circuits to understand fungal metabolism
  • Underneath, within, and around: pathogens and symbionts
  • Genetic control of primary and secondary metabolism
  • Fungi at the cutting edge – microfluidics and other new tools
  • Machine Learning in Fungal Genetics
  • Experimental evolution with fungi
  • Interactions of fungi with the biosphere
  • Morphogenesis at multiple scales
  • Horizontal gene transfer, meiotic drive, and related phenomena
  • Biofilms, biocontrol, and disease prevention by genome engineering
  • Understanding fungal pathogenesis by genomics
  • Signaling in the gas phase
  • Phase separation and sequestration

A virtual attendance option is planned in addition to the in-person meeting. Virtual participant registration fees for full-time residents of any country with low- and middle-income economies will be waived.
