"New Horizons in Molecular Zoology"

September 13th-14th at Kiel, Germany

satellite to the annual meeting of the German Zoological Society (DZG)


Dear all,

on behalf of the iBeetle consortium I would like to cordially invite you to the final iBeetle symposium "New Horizons in Molecular Zoology", which will take place September 13th-14th at Kiel, Germany as satellite to the annual meeting of the German Zoological Society (DZG).

At the iBeetle symposium we want to present selected results of the large scale RNAi screen iBeetle and learn from the exciting work of invited speakers and contributed talks on molecular zoology and pest/vector control.

In a short optional workshop we want to show how future RNAi screens can be easily performed in the red flour beetle based on resources generated during the project and help you planning your RNAi screen.

Our invited speakers:

Elena Levashina
(Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology, Berlin, Germany)

Immune response of Anopheles, the vector of Malaria

Urs Schmidt-Ott
(University of Chicago, USA)

Morphogens in Development and Evolution

Abderraham Khila
(Institute of Functional Genomics, Lyon, France)

Developmental mechanisms and selective forces driving trait exaggeration in water striders

Angelika Stollewerk
(Queen Mary University, London, UK)

The evolution of neurogenesis - modules and flexible toolkits

Siegfried Roth
(University of Cologne, Germany)

Evolution of dv patterning in insects

Guy Smagghe
(Ghent University, Belgium)


Yoshinori Tomoyasu
(Miami University, Oxford, USA)

The wing regulatory network of beetles

Gerrit Joop
(Justus-Liebig University Gießen, Germany)

Microbiota, a potential symbiont and the chemical secretion profile of different Tribolium castaneum lines
