Eighth International Conference of Genetics


    WE are informed by Prof. O. L. Mohr, of Oslo, chairman of the International Committee of Genetics Congresses, that the question as to the place for the next International Congress of Genetics has now been considered and voted upon by the International Committee, which has by a large majority resolved to invite the British geneticists to arrange the next congress in Great Britain in 1939. The committee of the British Genetical Society has passed a resolution welcoming the invitation. British geneticists will shortly appoint an organization committee, after which further information concerning the date and place of the congress will be published.
