The Molecular and Developmental Biology of Drosophila

The principal theme of the EMBO Conference is the Molecular and Developmental Biology of Drosophila. The conference has been supported by EMBO for over thirty years and awarded the status of EMBO CONFERENCE in 2000. This will be the 19th biennial Crete meeting.

The objective of this EMBO Conference is to bring together an international group of principal investigators to present their findings on gene organisation and expression, development, pattern formation, neurobiology and the evolution of Drosophila.

The meeting is one of a small number of international workshops that cover a broad topic while limiting attendance to about 100 participating principal investigators in order to foster close interactions between leading Drosophila research labs.
