Dear colleagues,

We encourage submissions of abstracts (deadline 28 february 2009) for the:

International Conference on Polyploidy, Hybridization and Biodiversity 
ICPHB2009 that will take place at the Palais du Grand Large, Saint-Malo 
(France) on 17-20 may 2009.

The recent years have seen significant advances in understanding the 
consequences of reticulate evolution and genome duplication that appear a 
major feature of eukaryotic lineages. The meeting aims at promoting 
knowledge exchanges and discussions on the latest developments concerning 
these major drivers of genome shaping and speciation. A wide range of 
topics will be covered such as the consequences of polyploidy on 
biodiversity, hybrid and polyploid speciation, meiosis and fertility in 
polyploid species, genome evolution and structure, transposable elements 
and DNA methylation, epigenetics and gene regulation, heterosis, phenotypic 
variation ...
Registration is open at http://www.icphb2009.univ-rennes1.fr/ , oral and / 
or poster contributions are welcome.

Saint-Malo is a beautiful and well-known medieval city on the NW coast of 
France (Brittany region). It is visited by thousands of tourists every year 
due to its historical centre, attractive coasts and magnificent landscapes.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Saint-Malo, France in May 2009!
