The Midwest Population Genetics Conference began in 2014 under the vision of several faculty members who wanted to continue the tradition of population genetics being a field a remarkably tight-knit and nurturing community. Now in its third-year, the Midwest PopGen Conference continues to serve its mission to provide a low-pressure environment in which students and postdocs are encouraged to present and discuss their research with peers and meet new colleagues.

The 2017 conference taking place on the Michigan State University campus was organized primarily by Gideon Bradburd with help from several other faculty and student helpers.
