A Canadian Zebrafish and Xenopus workshop will be held at the Cumming School of Medicine, at the University of Calgary prior to the Canadian Developmental Biology meeting. The University of Calgary is directly on Highway 1 leading to Banff and is about 25 minutes from the Airport and 1.5 hours from Banff. The workshop will end in time to get to Banff for the opening of the CDBC.
The workshop will start at 1pm on March 18 and finish with lunch on March 19 in time to travel to the CDB. It will feature short talks picked from the abstract, a community session, and posters. Everyone is encouraged to submit an abstract!
