OCTOBER 23-25 TH 2014



The first GENiE meeting took place in Weggis, a small village on the scenic shore of Lake Luzern on Oct 23-25th 2014.

 A very big thank you to all those who made it so enjoyable. In addition to finding out more about who we all are, what we all work on and admiring the great mountain views, several non-GENiE’s dropped by to share their thoughts. We heard about the philosophy of model organisms from Jean Gayon, got tips on model organism-based networks from @FlyJedi Bart Deplanke and learnt more about engaging the public in basic research from Cathy Southworth. The GENiE is out of the bottle…
