Dear colleagues,


Meeting - The Molecular Life of Diatoms, 25 – 28 June 2013, Paris

Rapid progress in genomics and molecular genetics in selected model diatoms, together with the novel resources derived from modern oceanography and materials science are providing new opportunities to understand diatom biology and ecology, and to exploit them for biofuels and nanotechnology. This EMBO Workshop aims to be a platform to share the most recent research, establish new collaborations, and open up novel directions to fully harness the enormous potential of these fascinating organisms.

22nd North American Diatom Symposium, 13-17 August 2013 Bar Harbor, Maine, USA

The 22nd North American Diatom Symposium will be held from 13-17 August 2013 at the College of the Atlantic in scenic Bar Harbor, Maine, USA. The campus is located on the ocean, adjacent to Acadia National Park. International participants will present work on all aspects of diatom investigations including climate, biodiversity, evolution, ecology, systematics, biological assessment, and nanotechnology. We hope you can join us in Maine for an exciting meeting with beautiful ocean views and, of course, lobster!
