Dear SMBE Members,

The SMBE Satellite Meeting on “De Novo Gene Birth” will take place at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX, on November 6-9, 2023. 

De novo genes represent a major source of genetic variation with a profound impact on adaptation, phenotypic variation, and evolutionary innovation. This international meeting will bring together scientists from across the world to provide a synthesis of the current knowledge of de novo gene evolution and function, develop shared guidelines concerning the annotation of de novo genes, identify critical areas and compelling questions on de novo gene birth and promote novel interdisciplinary collaborations. 

The meeting will include plenary talks from Drs. Anne-Ruxandra Carvunis and Erich Bornberg-Bauer, and invited talks from Drs. David Begun, Christina Cheng, Manyuan Long, Jorge Ruiz-Orera, Christian Rödelsperger, Alan Saghatelian, Yusuke Suenaga, Gisela Storz, Diethard Tautz and Eve Wurtele.

Registration and submission for contributed talks and posters are now open! The abstract submission deadline is June 30th.
