Identity and Diversity: Developmental Biology from Molecules to Cells to Organisms
Mt. Holyoke College, MA, USA
June 16th-20th, 2019 (GRS June 15th-16th)
The 2019 Gordon Conference on Developmental Biology will present the most recent, cutting-edge research in the field. In keeping with this year’s theme of Identity and Diversity: Developmental Biology from Molecules to Cells to Organisms, we will have nine sessions of oral presentations covering cell identity and robustness in the era of single-cell ‘omics, developmental time, chromatin and epigenetic influences on cell identity, dynamic imaging (and imaging dynamics), new concepts of pattern, metabolism and growth control, developmental robustness in noisy systems and will feature a number of investigators working towards in vitro precision in vivo. This year we will also pay tribute to 50 years of “Positional Information”, recognizing the 1969 landmark paper and the work by Lewis Wolpert and others that led to this conceptual synthesis.
Abstracts due March 15th for talk consideration
