TiBE 2018 | HOST-PARASITE INTERACTIONS
December 5-7, 2018 | CIBIO-InBIO, Campus de Vairão
2018-04-11
 

 

 

TiBE, Trends in Biodiversity and Evolution, is an annual meeting organized by CIBIO-InBIO, which aims to bring together senior researchers, post-graduate and graduate students working on the field of evolutionary biology to present and discuss cutting-edge findings in relevant topics related with speciation, molecular evolution, comparative genomics, population and conservation genetics research, among others. Held in an informal but stimulating scientific atmosphere, these conferences provide an excellent opportunity for strong interaction and brainstorming between students and more experienced researchers.

 

This year, TiBE2018 will be devoted to HOST-PARASITE INTERACTIONS.

 

The development of new methodologies in the 21st century is allowing to overcome most of the previous limitations on parasites detection, providing exciting opportunities for a better understanding of parasite communities and the interaction between these organisms and their hosts. During four sessions, we will approach ongoing research on different aspects of host-parasite interactions: evolution and diversity of parasites, host-parasite molecular and ecological interactions, epidemiology and current challenges. We believe that this is an excellent opportunity to share and disseminate the cutting-edge research currently being done in this field. The conference will take place on December 5-7, 2018 at CIBIO-InBIO facilities in Vairão, Portugal. It will include 4 invited plenary talks, 16 oral communications (to be selected) and poster sessions.
