The 7th International Tunicate Meeting organized by the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn, will take place July on 22-26, 2013 at the Università degli Studi di Napoli “Parthenope”, in Napoli, Italy.
The International Tunicate Meeting is the principal biennial scientific gathering of the world tunicate research community. Platform speakers will be selected from submitted abstracts.
The call concerns studies describing any aspect of tunicate research, such as, e.g., developmental biology, regeneration, genomics, genetics, cell biology, physiology, neurobiology, biochemistry, allorecognition, evolution/systematics, ecology. Abstracts describing research on tunicates as invasive species are welcome, as this will be a topic of special interest at this meeting. In addition, work describing research in other organisms that sheds light on deuterostome evolution and chordate origins is also of much interest.
The deadline for abstract submission is April 30th while that for registration is May 31st.
Please, circulate this information to colleagues that are not currently included in the mailing list and may be interested to participating to the meeting.
