The Genetics Society was founded by William Bateson in 1919 and is one of the oldest learned societies devoted to Genetics in the world. Its membership of over 1700 consists of most of the UK's active geneticists, including academics, researchers and students. It is a registered charity, and organizes meetings to promulgate genetics, supports students to attend meetings, sponsors research through fieldwork grants and student bursaries, and promotes the Public Understanding of Genetics.

Grants of up to £1,000 are available to enable members to go on short training courses in the area of Genetics research. In some cases, longer courses or visiting another laboratory for training may be allowed.
