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, a small point sticking our from the FHL site, then behind it part of Shaw Island, Lopez Island, Turn Island, Pear Point on San Juan Island, and Brown Island can be seen in the background. On the horizon mountains near Mount Baker can be seen on the left, then the hills on other islands.


These are the webpages for the Evolutionary Quantitative Genetics Workshop, which was held July 11-15, 2022. For 2021 and 2022 on it was held online as a set of lectures, computer labs and discussions. It is sponsored by the Friday Harbor Laboratories of the University of Washington. From 2011 to 2019 this workshop has been held in person, from 2017 at the Laboratories in Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, Washington. In 2020 it was cancelled owing to the pandemic. In 2021 and in 2022 it was held online. We hope to resume the in-person workshop in 2023.
