Texas Genetics Society

The Texas Genetics Society was established in 1974 as a nonprofit association whose purpose is to foster the development of all aspects of genetics, to promote the exchange of research results and the teaching of genetics, and to provide a forum for discussion of matters of interest to all geneticists. Membership is open to all persons interested in genetics research, the training of geneticists, and the delivery of genetic services.
