IAFSB 2009: 1st meeting "Interdisciplinary Approaches in Fish Skeletal Biology"
An increasing number of biological disciplines focus on fish skeletal biology, including paleontology, morphology, developmental biology, systematic, genomics, proteomics, regenerative medicine, and aquaculture. The first International Workshop on "Interdisciplinary Approaches in Fish Skeletal Biology" aims at joining experts from these, often separated, research communities and promote exchange in ideas, concepts and methodological approaches applied to fish skeletal research. This should contribute to the advancement of research in all sub-disciplines and implement the basis for new interdisciplinary collaborations in this field. We heartily welcome all participants and we thank everybody for contributing to make this workshop a reality.
We hope that you will all have an exciting, fruitful and joyful meeting.
