Call for participation to “Future of the nematodes studies” meeting

“Future of the nematodes studies (線虫研究の未来を創る会 in Japanese)” meeting is back online this year! This meeting is aimed to activate the Japanese nematode-research field as much as possible by providing young researchers opportunities to present and network. Previous meetings were held at NIG (2018) and Nagoya University (2019), and were very successful. By taking advantage of the ability to meet online, we hope everyone, from all over the world, from students to PIs, actively participates in presentations and discussions!
