We are excited to announce that the 6th Uppsala Transposon Symposium – integrating transposon and virus identification into evolution and disease research will be on October 26-28 in Uppsala (in person, likely with livestream)!
As previously for this symposium, registration will be free of charge and especially early-career scientists are encouraged to submit an abstract for a regular talk or poster with lightning talk. A detailed programme for the three full symposium days will be announced in mid-August when registration opens.
If you are looking for a second reason (apart from Uppsala October weather) to travel to Uppsala, note that the Long-Read Uppsala meeting will be directly after the Uppsala Transposon Symposium.
Please save the date!
