Polyploidy is a conserved and frequently occurring phenomenon whose impact on organismal health and disease is poorly understood. This is the second symposium at MDI Biological Laboratory designed to bring together researchers studying polyploidy.
This symposium will build on the 2018 event to bring together researchers working on a wide range of model organisms; plants, fruit flies, mice, yeast and others. Symposium topics will include cell cycle and growth regulation, cell fusion, genome instability, as well as disease models and tissue repair.
Keynote Speaker: Rebecca Heald, Ph.D., UC Berkley
We hope that you will join us for this unique opportunity to integrate multiple research perspectives and disciplines, identify new collaborative opportunities, and directions for the emerging areas of polyploid research. Abstracts will be accepted for short talk or poster presentations. Submission deadline is May 30, 2021. Abstracts are submitted through the registration process.
