The 8th Edition of the Annual Portuguese Drosophila Meeting (#DrosTuga2021), aims at bringing together national and international members of the Portuguese Drosophila community. Along with them, Portuguese Drosophila scientists abroad and any participant from other country interested in Drosophila and developmental research are invited. https://igc.idloom.events/drostuga2021
The purpose of this Drosophila meeting is to promote open sharing of data and ideas, as well as to provide a rich forum for discussion of new research findings and conceptual breakthroughs in an informal environment.
Due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, this edition will be held entirely ONLINE on the afternoons of the 29th and 30th of November 2021.
The event will include selected short and long talks presented at the Plenary Sessions via Zoom. Thanks to our sponsors, the best talks and posters will receive a prize. In addition to the presentations, there will be time for discussion and mixing between researchers at all career stages during the two interactive Poster Sessions (held in the Hopin platform). You can take a look at the programme for more details.
In this DrosTuga 2021 edition, we will have the pleasure of listening to two great Keynote Speakers. Their exciting work spans a broad range of topics of interest to our community: Isabel Palacios and Nicolas Gompel. Besides our speakers research, we will have the opportunity of talking about outreach and the importance of Drosophila studies in science.
Attendance is FREE, but registration is compulsory.
