INRA is organizing a workshop about Microtubules at Versailles, on 3-4 July 2017.
Microtubules are found in almost all eukaryotic cells -from fungi and plants to mammals and human- and play a crucial role during mitosis as well as during interphase. Defects in microtubules organization or dynamics lead in animals to pathologies, such as metastatic tumors and neuronal diseases and in plants to altered development and reproduction.
Invited speaker: Thomas Surrey (The Francis Crick Institute, London) "Self-organisation of expanding versus contracting microtubule networks with mitotic motors"
Registration before 20th May 2017
