GENIE BM1408 workshop: Worm Cytoskeleton - from filaments to physiology


About the workshop: This workshop is intended to bring together C. elegans researchers working on the cytoskeleton and its regulation, at all levels, from chromosome segregation by microtubules and actomyosin rings driving cell division to disease models of laminopathies. The workshop will foster interdisciplinary collaborations, through the sharing of results and discussion of projects, methods and ideas. This workshop, organized by COST BM1408 will be open to GENiE PIs and their group members, as well as anyone else who works on the cytoskeleton in worms.
