The 4th Nothobranchius Symposium

3-4 June 2021, **** ONLINE ****

NEW DATES ARE 3-4 JUNE 2021. SYMPOSIUM WILL BE HELD ONLINE ON ZOOM WEBINAR (TALKS) AND CONGREGATE (POSTERS) PLATFORMS. THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS, PARTICIPATION AT THE SYMPOSIUM IS FREE – BUT PLEASE REGISTER!

The Nothobranchius Symposium is usually organised every second year and serves as a platform for researchers with an interest in all aspects of Nothobranchius biology, from biomedical to ecological research to meet and discuss ideas.

We welcome:

  • Contributions on any aspect of Nothobranchius biology, using the turquoise killifish (N. furzeri) and other Nothobranchius species as models.
  • Contributions on other annual killifish taxa and on topics related to the killifish-based research agenda.
  • Those considering using killifish for their future research.

The number of participants was typically 100-200, making the symposia sufficiently small for establishing social contacts and sufficiently large to accommodate all aspects of Nothobranchius biology. After we had to cancel the meeting in Brno (Czech Republic) in June 2020, we expect slightly higher numbers for 2021 online symposium as we hope it makes it easier for non-European researchers to join.

**** Registration is open, abstract submission deadline is 16 May 2021. ****

Specific themes discussed in previous symposia included: Genomics, Transcriptomics and Transgenesis, Proteomics,  Epigenetics, Cell Biology, Diapause and Regeneration, Anatomy and Pathology, Ecotoxicology, Metabolism and Behaviour, Ecology and Evolution.
