Mini-conference on ”Mathematical Population Genetics”

The winner for 2021 Cramér prize is Martina Favero with her thesis in mathematical population genetics and title ‘Asymptotics, weak convergence and duality in population genetics’. In connection to the Cramér society’s spring meeting March 24, we invite you to participate in a mini-conference (online/Zoom) on the theme ”Mathematical Population Genetics”.
