Symposium: Comparative Proteomics of Environmental and Pollution Stress

This symposium is the first of its kind to address the changes at the proteome level in organisms in response to environmental stresses. The contributions will introduce comparative biologists to the potential of a proteomics approach to address biological questions, the methodology and potential collaborators. The list of speakers includes a diverse group of post-docs and principle investigators, several from Europe.


Sponsors: DCE, DCPB, DNB.


Organizer

  • Lars Tomanek, California Polytechnic State University
