COMPARATIVE GENOMICS OF EUKARYOTIC MICROORGANISMS: UNDERSTANDING THE
COMPLEXITY OF DIVERSITY
We invite you to participate in the upcoming EMBO conference on Comparative
Genomics of Eukaryotic Microorganisms to be held in San Feliu de Guixols,
Spain, 15-22 October 2011 (see Website:
This conference will address the big evolutionary questions of what makes a
eukaryote, how multicellularity arose, the evolution of reproduction,
pathogenesis, and so on. Lineages of the Eukaryotic Tree of Life (TOL) that
until now received only moderate attention, such as the Excavates,
Archaeoplastids, Amoebozoa and Choanozoa, will be discussed, together with
the better studied Chromalveolates and Fungi.
There will be opportunities for participants to present both short talks and
posters, which will be conducted interactively with plenty of time reserved
for questions and discussions. In addition there will be interactive
workshops on Do It Yourselfı genomics, databases and bioinformatics.
This is the 4th time the meeting will be held at this very nice venue on the
Costa Brava, on the Mediterranean near Barcelona. The weather is still
generally nice at this time of year and the food is great. There will be
free shuttle buses from the Barcelona airport.
There are still spaces available and room for more short talks as well as
poster presentations. We hope to see you at what will be an exciting and
informative meeting. Please contact Heather Barnett at
