Tutorials and presentations

Recent communications (other than scientific articles published since 2007 and those related to JEMU research projects).


JEMU attended the congress ‘Island Biology:  Ecological and evolutionary processes on real and habitat islands‘, Lipari (Italy), 2023, and gave a presentation on their work entitled ‘Progressive spread of an ancient inversion polymorphism blends the role of within-island evolution and inter-island colonization along a parallel Galápagos beetle radiation’.

Poster: An update about the ongoing research in InsectMOoD was provided by Lore Esselens (RMCA) during the 11th International Symposium on Fruit Flies of Economic Importance (ISFFEI, 13-8/11/2022, Sydney). The InsectMOoD open-access database for voucher archiving (including voucher metadata, genomic data and digital imaging) has been initiated and will be soon published in the framework of the projects InsectMOoD (BELSPO) and in synergy with SYNTHESYS+ (https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/823827). Here are the poster and the abstract.
