Developmental Biology of the Sea Urchin XVI
April 6 - 9, 2005
Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA


Developmental Biology of the Sea Urchin XVI will open a new chapter in the long and rich history of sea urchin as a model organism for developmental study at the molecular level. Biological implications of the sea urchin genome sequence will be a central focus of the meeting.

Plenary Talks, anticipating the availability of the genomic resource, will focus on early results from genomic information, and will project the opportunities afforded by this resource.

Emerging Topics Talks will focus on new information that will move the field forward. The intersection between the Emerging Topics and the Poster Sessions will give participants ample opportunity to discuss issues and ideas.

Slots have been left open for late-breaking information. The program was organized based on our knowledge of published or pre-published information. We will make every effort to incorporate new information into the program. In addition, there will be ample poster space for coverage of projects that are underway.

A limited number of $400 US travel awards will be available for international students and international young faculty.

We look forward to seeing you in Woods Hole.
