The 4th Nothobranchius Symposium

3-5 June 2020, Brno, Czech Republic

THE SYMPOSIUM HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

PLEASE MARK A NEW DATE TO YOUR CALENDARS: 3-4 JUNE 2021.

The Nothobranchius Symposium is organised every second year and serves as a platform for researchers with an interest in all aspects of Nothobranchius biology, from biomedical to ecological research to meet and discuss ideas.

We welcome:

  • Contributions on any aspect of Nothobranchius biology, using the turquoise killifish (N. furzeri) and other Nothobranchius species as models.
  • Contributions on other annual killifish taxa and on topics related to the killifish-based research agenda.
  • Those considering using killifish for their future research.

The number of participants is typically 100-200, making the symposia sufficiently small for establishing social contacts and sufficiently large to accommodate all aspects of Nothobranchius biology.

Specific themes discussed in previous symposia included: Genomics, Transcriptomics and Transgenesis, Proteomics,  Epigenetics, Cell Biology, Diapause and Regeneration, Anatomy and Pathology, Ecotoxicology, Metabolism and Behaviour, Ecology and Evolution.

Previous symposia were held in:

  • 2018 Cologne, Germany
  • 2016 Jena, Germany
  • 2014 Pisa, Italy
