TiBE - TRENDS IN BIODIVERSITY AND EVOLUTION 2016

Tropical Biodiversity

 

TiBE, Trends in Biodiversity an Evolution, is an annual meeting organized by CIBIO-InBIO, which aims to bring together senior researchers, post-graduate and graduate students working on the field of evolutionary biology to present and discuss cutting-edge findings in relevant topics related with speciation, molecular evolution, comparative genomics, population and conservation genetics research, among others. Held in an informal but stimulating scientific atmosphere, these conferences provide an excellent opportunity for strong interaction and brainstorming between students and more experienced researchers.

 

TiBE 2016 will be devoted to Tropical Biodiversity and we believe that it will be an excellent opportunity to hear and share the work that is being done in tropical areas. These conferences will take place on November 28 – 29 at Campus de Vairão, University of Porto, and will be hosted by CIBIO-InBIO's Tropical Biology group – TROPBIO.
