The Fourth International Volvox Conference will take place at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, Missouri, August 16-19, 2017.
The goal of the International Volvox Conference is to bring together international scientists working with Volvox and its relatives (aka Volvocales or volvocine algae). We cordially invite experimentalists and theorists interested in these fascinating organisms. The Volvocine algae have become an important model system for the evolution of multicellularity, development and cellular differentiation, and have yielded important results in fields as diverse as genomics, biological physics, hydrodynamics, and social evolution. We hope that these meetings will foster exchange of ideas and expertise, and will initiate new collaborations to expand and strengthen the Volvocales community.
