NemaTours : bringing worms together

Nematode worms are a diverse collection of organisms from the free living Caenorhabditis elegans, perhaps the best characterized multicellular animal, to parasites that infect farm animals, crop plants and humans, many of which are difficult to experiment with. Great advances can be made using one species to understand another.

During this two day Conference, twelve internationally recognized leaders in different nematode fields will come together and focus on future techniques to enhance our understanding of parasitic nematodes with knowledge from their different backgrounds.
