March 14th and 15th 2016 – Ctenopalooza meeting!

CtenopaloozaThe first every ctenophore-only meeting was just held at the Whitney Lab in St. Augustine Florida, bringing together ctenophore enthusiasts from all over the world.

In light of the recent phylogenomic studies placing ctenophores as the most early-diverging animals (Ryan et al. 2013, Moroz et al., 2014), more and more researchers are interested in understanding the biology of these “aliens in the ocean”.
