Deadline for registration: May 20! CIG Symposium 2011 GENETICS OF BEHAVIOUR

The dates of the CIG Symposium 2011 are already known: June 20 and 21. The organizers are: Mehdi Tafti, Laurent Keller from the DEE and Sandi Carmen from the EPFL.

For “Genetics of Behavior”, the designed program will discuss the many ways in which organisms behavior is influenced by their genes and how the interplay between the genetic and environmental contributions lead to individual variations in behavior. By bringing together the best researchers studying important, but diverse, aspects of this topic, the organizers aim for a highly interactive Symposium that provokes new reflections on this fascinating research field.
