African Turquoise Killifish, Nothobranchius furzeri, is a species of killifish native to Zimbabwe and Mozambique. Harsh conditions led to extreme adaptation in this vertebrate system, including developmental diapause that can last for more than a year. This makes it an excellent system for studying the mechanisms that control adaptive responses and the interplay between environment and genetics. It also holds great promise for biomedical research by adding resolution to the interconnection between development, aging, and regeneration. The International African Turquoise Killifish Conference will explore these areas of study and will take place online on September 11 and 12, 2021.
