34th Annual Mini-Symposium

UNCONVENTIONAL MODEL ORGANISMS IN THE GENOMICS ERA

This year’s symposium will be held virtually via Zoom. REGISTER HERE

 

From yeast to primates, model organisms have helped define our understanding of human biology and the world around us. This year's mini-symposium spotlights exciting developments in species less familiar to the general public that are used to expand our knowledge of development and evolution.

 

The speakers for this event include: Amy Schmid (Duke, extremophiles); Laura Landweber (Columbia, Oxytricha); Phil Newmark (Morgridge Institute, flatworms); Mark Krasnow (Stanford, mouse lemurs); Craig Miller (UC Berkeley, stickleback fish); Ralph Greenspan (UCSD, moon jellyfish); and our keynote, Celina Juliano (UC Davis, Hydra).

 

We hope you will join us for this unique learning opportunity! The event is free, but registration is required.
