Online Events

At GSA, we believe connection is the cornerstone of a strong scientific community. Through virtual seminars and workshops, GSA provides scientists with rich opportunities to learn, collaborate, and share—no matter where they are in the world.



Hear quick takes on important topics


Hear from inspiring minds in the field of genetics in GSA’s interview podcast series. Experts weigh in on important topics: the value of research organisms, their recent work, their award-recognized work, the importance of the scientific community, and more. We’ve summarized their insights into bite-sized “SNPets,” so you can discover and share interesting perspectives—even when you only have five minutes to spare.

Featuring speakers from North, Central, and South America

International Seminar Series

Virtual Café Series

The Community and Membership Engagement Subcommittee is pleased to announce the launch of its Virtual Café series. The Virtual Cafés will consist of casual online gatherings of our community and provide a platform for us to get to know each other and discuss topics of broad interest to early career researchers. Each café will focus on a specific topic and will be hosted by either the Community and Membership Engagement Subcommittee or one of the subcommittees of the GSA Early Career Leadership program.

The first Virtual Café was hosted by the Career Development Subcommittee in November 2020.
