WELCOME Friends and Colleagues!
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the forthcoming
Mitochondrial Genomics and Evolution – an SMBE Satellite Meeting
which will take place on September 3 - 6, 2017 at Ein-Gedi, Israel
The program will incorporate the following topics:
A. The beginning of life and the mitochondria
B. Uniparental inheritance of the mitochondria – always?
C. Mito-nuclear co-evolution
D. The evolution of mitochondrial activity and regulation
E. The evolution of the mitochondrial genome: genome organization and intracellular dynamics
We urge participants wishing to present their work to submit an abstract for either oral or poster presentation.
The conference is designed to enable plenty of time for discussion and interactions with colleagues during the breaks and social activities.
The magnificent natural landscape surrounding the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, provides an ideal setting for our meeting.
We look forward to welcoming all participants to the Dead Sea, Israel!
