République Française Inserm
Institut thématique Biologie cellulaire, développement et évolution


The pathways leading from cells to embryo are highly complex. They involve among others steps of cell determination, patterning, cellular and organ morphogenesis, processes that are tightly controlled and coordinated in space and time.

However, during the last decade, this field has benefited from major findings in the understanding of epigenetics, gene regulatory networks, mechanobiology, mechanisms of cell specification among others, and also from technical advances such as single cell omics.

This symposium will address state-of-the-art research in this field, both in animals and plants. It will feature keynote and invited lectures, and selected short talks.

The symposium is organized at the initiative of the Multi-Organization Thematic Institute Cell Biology, Development & Evolution (ITMO - BCDE), jointly with the French Society of Developmental Biology (SFBD) and with the French Society of Cell Biology (SBCF). See the composition of the Scientific Organization Committee

The meeting will take place as scheduled on November 16 - 17, 2020. Given the sanitary situation, it will finally be organized exclusively as an online event. Connection information will be provided in due time to registered participants.
If because of a time difference or another reason you cannot attend the presentations live, you will be able to access them later as recordings. This feature will be available only to registered participants.
