Call for posters as well as participants for the 64th NIBB Conference "Evolution of Seasonal Timers"

The National Institute for Basic Biology is holding the 64th NIBB Conference " Evolution of Seasonal Timers " from April 22nd to 24th, 2016. Organisms living outside the tropics experience seasonal changes in the environment, accordingly adapt their physiology and behavior. Circannual clocks are a fundamental feature of eukaryotic organisms, necessary for such diverse phenomena as the timed emergence of ground squirrels or bats from their hibernacula, the autumn migration of birds, and transitions between haploid and diploid life-cycle stages in unicells. The mechanistic nature of these circannual clocks remains one of the outstanding mysteries in biology. At this symposium, entitled “Evolution of seasonal timers”, we aim to promote our understanding of the mechanisms of seasonal time measurement and circannual clock. In addition to the invited speakers, poster presentations are welcome from participants, some of which will be selected for short talks. We are looking forward to seeing you in Okazaki.
