BSCB GenSoc UK Cilia Network e-Symposium 11


Date: 15 September 2020   Time: 15:00 - 17:30

We have a fantastic line up for you: interrogating differences between cilia types in the brain at nanoscale resolution; mysterious roles for meiotic proteins in cilia function; modeling ciliopathy genes for mechanism; fine tuning cells for sensing Hh; plus cilia and signaling in Down's Syndrome and in neural tube development!
