The Persatuan Genetik Malaysia (PGM) traces its roots back to 1994 through an initiative by a group of plant and animal breeders. Later, its membership broadened to include other important expertise areas, namely microbial and human genetics. Then, we became affiliated with the International Genetics Federation and with COSTAM.  Since its formation in 1994, PGM has grown steadily in membership, presently with over 300 members.

Persatuan Genetik Malaysia (Genetics Society of Malaysia) was officially registered on 29 January 1994. The primary objectives of the Society are to develop and promote scientific knowledge on genetics, to create public awareness on its importance and advancement, and to foster a strong relationship and understanding between scientists in genetics and allied disciplines. Since its founding, the Society has grown significantly in terms of membership, and currently has over 500 members, comprising 91 life members, 267 ordinary members, 7 associate members and 182 student members. The Society is now affiliated with the International Genetics Federation (IGF) and Confederation of Scientific and Technological Associations in Malaysia (COSTAM). The Society sees great potential in the science of genetics. More genetic technologies and products will be discovered throughout the world, giving greater impacts to human and their environment in the future. In any endeavour, the Society fervently hopes to participate and contribute towards their development in the country.
