Evolvienna Spring Symposium “Out of the Blue — origins and evolution of cells and regulatory systems in marine species”

Posted on April 26th, 2011 | News

Organizer: Florian Raible

The Evolvienna Spring Symposium will take place on May 9 at the Vienna Biocenter Campus (IMBA lecture hall, Dr. Bohr-Gasse 3).
The thematic focus of this symposium will be on evolution from a marine perspective. As the ocean is believed to be the cradle of evolution, the investigation of marine species has particular interest for evolutionary research. Our speakers cover a spectrum of different evolutionary topics, ranging from gene-regulatory networks and cell type evolution to the evolution of symbioses and molecular marine chronobiology.
