This year workshop at McGill University’s Bellairs Research Station in Holetown (Barbados) brings together researchers interested in the development of new model organisms.
The emergence of many new “non-model” model systems is at least in part due to recent advancements in gene editing technologies, cellular imaging, and single cell genomics. Therefore, the workshop also seeks to bring investigators interested in the advancement of such techniques to better exploit the unique biological features of these organisms.
…and it was another fantastic year. Thanks to the 2020 participants!
