13th BSCB GenSoc UK Cilia Network e-symposium


Date: 13 October 2020   Time: 15:00 - 17:30

Join us for all things cilia: diversity of ependymal motile cilia; primary cilia in meiosis; mysterious distal centrioles; resolving structures required for motility; cytoskeletal regulators and Hh signaling PLUS how signaling regulates sensory cilia size and shape!
