Meet face-to-face with the Xenopus research community at TAGC 2020! The meeting’s unique format offers multiple opportunities for you to share your work, learn about the latest research and tools, build community, and recruit newcomers to the field. Catch up with colleagues at the opening night Xenopus mixer and at designated community meeting spots throughout the meeting. We’ll make it easy to spot Xenopus people and posters via signage and badges.
If you submit an abstract, it will be reviewed and scheduled in one of three types of sessions:
Poster and Thematic Sessions will feature research from all communities, while Xenopus Community Sessions will be dedicated to research on Xenopus species.
When it comes to attending talks, you won’t be forced to choose between Xenopus and your favorite topic; Community Sessions and Thematic Sessions are held at different times, so there will be no need to miss out.
