The EFOR network ( is delighted to announce its 8th annual meeting on May 2nd and 3rd 2017!

Program available here:

This year on May 2nd, focus on genome editing!

Whether you are using this revolutionary technology or are simply curious, worried or fascinated, please apply to the meeting (mandatory). Do not miss talks on agronomic applications with hornless cows and potatoes that do not become brown. Take time to discuss with philosophers the ethical impacts of genome editing.

May 3rd will welcome 6 workshops, each dedicated to one type of model organisms: zebrafish, Xenopus, non-human primates, marine metazoa, algae and plants.

May 2nd: “Genome Editing in model organisms day"

Genome editing in plants, what's new for the world?
Genome editing in animals: how and for which applications?
Round table: genome editing, ethical questions

May 3rd: “Model dedicated workshops”
