Biology19 is the largest conference of organismal biology in Switzerland to stimulate exchange between students, researchers and professors across scientific institutions, research groups and disciplines. It is also the annual joint meeting of the Swiss Zoological, Botanical, and Systematics societies.
The two-day conference will include four plenary talks by invited speakers, many oral presentations by early-career scientists and poster sessions. Thursday evening, the traditional Darwin Dinner in honor of Darwin's birthday will feature Barbara König (University of Zurich) as our invited speaker.
