An opportunity to learn more about the Royal Society of Biology and the Genetics Society

The two speakers

The Royal Society of Biology is the UK’s leading professional association for the life sciences: representing a single unified voice for biology: advising government and influencing policy; advancing education and professional development; supporting our members, and engaging and encouraging public interest in the life sciences. Alexandra Spencer from the Royal Society of Biology has been to The Roslin Institute on Friday 9 February to talk about the Society and membership options.



Her talk was followed by a talk by Kay Boulton about the Genetics Society. The Genetics Society acts to support and promote research and teaching of genetics in the UK.  It covers the study of genomes, genes and gene action, and embraces scales ranging from the molecular and cellular to the population and ecosystem level.
