Deciphering the biology of human musicality through state-of-the-art genomics

KNAW Colloquium and Master Class on Musicality and Genomics


19-20-21 June 2019, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

This Academy Colloquium on Musicality and Genomics will bring together leading experts from neurobiology, cognitive psychology, music cognition and genetics to discuss (Day 1: 20 June 2019) the phenotypes of musicality, how to measure them, and genetic techniques for studying human variation, and (Day 2: 21 June 2019) the possibilities for combining musicality indices with the latest genomic methods, genetic pleiotropy between traits, and the instalment of an international consortium on the biological bases of musicality.

Preceding the international Academy Colloquium (19 June 2019) a Master Class for young researchers, PhD-students and research master students in music cognition,  genetics and related fields is organised.

N.B. More detailed information will follow soon. For now see the KNAW Website.
