This symposium aims to highlight the latest research on marine mussels (Mytilus sp.) from a multidisciplinary perspective, including studies from the fields of genomics, proteomics, immunology, physiology, ecology, ecotoxicology and aquaculture among others. Marine mussels represent an excellent study system in evolutionary biology, ecology, ecotoxicology, climate change and more importantly, they are a key species in aquaculture, being commercialised worldwide.
The symposium will take place in Sète (South of France, near Montpellier) next to the Thau lagoon. Sète is a historic fishing port known as the Venice of Languedoc. The Thau lagoon house oyster (Bouzigues oysters) and mussel farms.
The conference will start on Thursday 7 at 9 am and will end on Friday 8 at 3 pm. An excursion to the Thau lagoon shellfish farms will be organised on Friday afternoon after 3 pm and will be followed by a convivial diner on Friday night (package registration required).
The symposium will host 6 invited talks (1h), around 15 talks from participants (15min) and a poster session on Thursday evening.
Registration to the symposium is free. You have the opportunity to book for lunches, and for the excursion and convivial diner package.
Hoping to see you in Sète,
the organizing committee
