Mechanisms of Inter-Organismal Extended Phenotypes
Extended phenotypes are the effects of genes outside of the organism. This conference will focus on the manipulations of one organism by another, such as the induction of novel behaviors by parasites. We will bring together researchers studying diverse topics, ranging from the microscopic, such as the manipulation of cells by viruses, to the macroscopic, including the induction by parasites of new organs on plants. The two major goals of the meeting are to seek common themes emerging from studies of disparate systems and to identify new tools and approaches that may be broadly useful in studying extended phenotypes.
Janelia will cover lodging and meals for all participants, and travel support is available to those in need (please indicate need in that portion of the application). Participants are expected to stay for the duration of the workshop and will also have an opportunity to extend their stay for continued discussion and collaborative time.
The meeting will begin at 6pm ET on the first day and end by 1pm ET on the last.
Application Deadline (extended): Jan 8, 2024 (11:59 pm ET)
Please note: Because Janelia conferences are intentionally small and selective, we may not be able to accommodate all applicants. We strive for as broad a representation across labs as possible and therefore may limit participation to one person per group. Preference is given to applicants who are active researchers in the field and intend to present their work as a poster or selected talk.
