The workshop photo for the 2019 Evolutionary Quantitative Genetics Workshop  All lecturers and participants are shown except for lecturer Patrick Phillips, who left earlier. The photo was taken by Kathy Cowell, to whom thanks.  It was taken on a knoll next to the main Friday Harbor Laboratories building. The back row of people are bending down so you can see the scene behind us.  A tour boat can be seen in the background, leaving Friday Harbor. From left to right, parts of Shaw Island, Lopez Island, Turn Island, San Juan Island and Brown Island can be seen in the background.

Go to the “Previous years” link in the heading of this page and follow the links to individual lectures and exercises, and the links to videos of the lectures for the years in which those were posted.

The 2019 workshop was co-sponsored by The American Society of Naturalists, and by the Society for the Study of Evolution.


The cost of the workshop was $1000, to be paid after acceptance.  The two scientific societies  generously agreed to provide a $200 compensation to participants.  This was paid after the workshop, to participants who completed the workshop.  A condition of receiving the compensation is that the participant have joined that society by that time.  Each society compensates up to 13 of the participants, for a total of up to 26.  The workshop had 27 particicipants, so this covered almost everyone (priority was given to those registering earliest).
