Other Meetings of Interest










Major advances in our understanding of vertebrate development, cell biology, signal transduction, and neurobiology have come from studies in Xenopus, and this model is now at the forefront of efforts in vertebrate systems biology. The International Xenopus Conference has been held biennially since 1984, and is the premier forum for information exchange and interaction amongst researchers using this model organism for biomedical research. The meeting provides outstanding opportunities for interaction, with over 200 platforms talks by students, postdocs, and faculty, poster sessions, and roundtable career development forums. This meeting also provides an ideal forum to learn about the latest advances in genomics and new methodologies that are accelerating research with the Xenopus system. The last meeting (the 14th) was held in Giens, France in Sept. 2012 and was attended by over 350 researchers from around the world. GSA is proud to support this vibrant community and we invite you to join us for the next meeting at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, California in August of 2014.
