Description

The principal theme of the workshop is the Molecular and developmental biology of Drosophila. The workshop has been supported by EMBO for thirty years and awarded the status of EMBO CONFERENCE in 2000. This will be the 17th biennial Crete meeting.

Its objective is to bring together an international group of scientists to present their findings on gene organisation and expression, development, pattern formation, neurobiology and the evolution of Drosophila.

The workshop is a highly anticipated forum for researchers involved in the field of Drosophila molecular and developmental biology.

The workshop is one of a small number of international workshops that cover a broad topic while maintaining its size in order to foster close interactions between the participants. It is a highly anticipated forum for researchers involved in the field of Drosophila molecular and developmental biology.

Approximately 110 participants will be selected from the applications by the vote of the organising committee. The participants are all expected to contribute to the subject coverage and are required to present a fifteen-minute talk on their work.
