We invite interdisciplinary contributions including molecular, genetics and cellular studies, as well as bioinformatics and mathematical modelling approaches, applied to a wide range of model organisms (prokaryotes, plants, yeast, insects, ciliates, vertebrates,...). The programme will include invited talks, selected talks and ample time for poster presentation and discussions. Junior researchers are encouraged to apply for oral presentations.
