Plenary talk by Hanna Kokko on partial migration on Wednesday

Our lab-meeting about the genetics of high-altitude adaptation in humans will start somewhat later than usual on Wednesday, namely at 10.30 on Wednesday September 1, and not the usual time at 10.15. The reason is that there will be an interesting plenary lecture about the evolution of partial migration by Professor Hanna Kokko (University of Helsinkki) that will start at 09.40 in the "Blue Hall".  

Hanna is an excellent speaker, so we might not want to miss this. Her talk will end approximately 10.20, and after that we will start our regular lab-meeting. During the rest of the day and in the afternoon, there will be other interesting talks during the symposium on partial migration, which might be worth attending.

And from 17.00 and onwards, there will be a "CAnMove"-barbecue, organized by postdocs Sophia Engel, Ben Chapman and Miriam Liedvogel. Contact Sophia for more info (


  1. Good plan, Erik, and .... did I just see that Hanna is now at the university of Australia?
    Oh, and I'll bring fika.

  2. Machteld:

    Good that you bring fika! Yes, Hanna has moved to Australia, quite recently. Good for her!
