Registration open EMBO Workshop “The Evolution of Animal Genomes” – 13-17 Sept 2021

Posted by , on 3 June 2021

We are happy to announce the upcoming EMBO workshop “The Evolution of Animal Genomes”.

The event will take place virtually, from 13-17 September 2021 (Registration and abstract deadline: 12th July 2021)

The development of novel tools to analyze and reconstruct entire genomes open exciting possibilities to understand the appearance of phenotypical traits. This workshop will bring together internationally recognized scientists with distinct, but complementary, expertise in interpreting the effects of genomic variability. The combination of such aspects allows a comprehensive overview that goes from fundamental principles encoded in genomes to their ultimate biological significance on the formation of living, evolving organisms.

An exciting line-up of speakers (keynote lecture by Mike Levine) will cover the following topics:

– Principles of genomic adaptation
– Evolutionary impact of regulatory variation
– From linear to spatial – The 3D genome
– Transposable elements as drivers of evolution
– Evolution at single-cell resolution

There will be short talks selected from abstracts, as well as ample time for networking.

Fee waiver and childcare grants available.

Hope to see many of you there!!
