Meiosis (Isabelle Colas, James Hutton Institute)

The 2017 British Meiosis Meeting, co-organised by Dr Isabelle Colas (James Hutton Institute) and Dr Alexander Lorenz (University of Aberdeen), aims to gather UK researchers with interests in meiosis, with an emphasis on presentations by postdocs and students and informal discussions between the talks.

The meeting will cover all aspects of meiosis, ranging from research into the molecular mechanisms that promote pairing, recombination and chromosome segregation in model organisms to how these events impact on human fertility and crop breeding.

This two-day event provides an excellent forum for PhD students and Postdocs to present their research as an oral or poster presentation. Oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts.

This year, the plenary speakers are world-class scientists Mathilde Grelon (Institute Jean-Pierre Bourgin, INRA, Versailles, France) and Bernard de Massy (Institute of Human Genetics, CNRS, Montpellier, France).
