Virtual Symposium: Genome Activation
Join us for a virtual symposium about Zygotic Genome Activation! The goal of the symposium is to provide researchers with a platform to share their latest work in the field of genome activation. This will help reinforce and build connections in our field, and our hope is that the virtual format will allow scientists from around the world to participate. The symposium will be free of charge. Each session will last 1.5 hours and will feature several short presentations from faculty and trainees.

Registration is required.
