British Meiosis Meeting 2023
The British Meiosis Meeting provides a platform for scientists working on genetic recombination, cell division, and genome evolution in a wide range of (model) organisms to present their research to the scientific community. The majority of speakers will be post-doctoral researchers and post-graduate students selected from abstracts. This meeting will run from mid-day on 19th April until around mid-day on 20th April and will incorporate a poster session and conference dinner. This meeting is open to all researchers with an interest in meiosis and is not restricted to the British meiosis community.
Abstracts (300 words) for posters/consideration for talks should be e-mailed to BMM2023@ed.ac.uk on or before March 19th.
Session themes will include:
- Generation and Progression of Meiotic Recombination
- Synaptonemal Complex
- Meiotic Chromosome Segregation
