EMBO|EMBL Symposium: The Identity and Evolution of Cell Types

15 May 2019 - 18 May 2019

EMBL Advanced Training Centre,
Meyerhofstraße 1,
Heidelberg 69117, Germany

For the first time, our EMBO | EMBL Symposium will provide a forum for the emerging field of cell type and tissue origination in the single-cell genomics era. We will jointly discuss fundamental questions such as the origins of cell types in the evolution of multicellularity, their diversification in divergent animal lineages, and the molecular evolution of regulatory networks underlying the specification of cell types and tissues.
