2006 EMBO Caenorhabditis Evolution Workshop

May 24-26, 2006 in Oeiras, Portugal

Workshop summary published in Trends in Genetics

We are happy to announce the first international workshop dedicated to the study of evolution with Caenorhabditis species. The workshop will be held at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciencia in Oeiras, 20km from Lisbon, Portugal. A reception will take place on the May 23rd.

Session Topics
The program will encompass several sessions on diverse topics such as:

  • breeding system evolution and male function;
  • genotypic distributions during inbreeding and adaptation to novel environments;
  • genetics of complex characteristics;
  • intra and inter-specific developmental genetics of vulva differentiation, sex determination, behavior and host-parasite interactions.

    A session will also be dedicated to Caenorhabditis evolutionary biology resources.

    We plan to host approximately 50 participants. If you would like to attend, please send a brief description of your research together with a title and abstract of a 30 minute talk or poster to Henrique Teotónio on or before January 15, 2006.
