About the conference

This conference will cover all aspects of transposable element biology, including molecular mechanisms, cellular defense pathways, physiological impact on organisms, evolution of genomes and populations, and ecology.

This is the 21st annual meeting organized by the French research community working on transposable elements and will take place this year in Clermont-Ferrand. The central location of Clermont-Ferrand in France and the natural environment surrounded by 80 volcanoes make it exceptional. We welcome interdisciplinary contributions including molecular, genetics and cellular studies, as well as bioinformatics and mathematical modelling approaches, applied to a wide range of model organisms (prokaryotes, yeast, insects, plants, mammals, ciliates,...).

The program will include invited Keynote Speakers (Kirsten-André Senti from Vienna, Kazufumi Mochizuki from Montpellier), selected talks and ample time for poster presentation and discussions. Junior researchers are encouraged to apply for oral presentations and a price of 250€ will be discerned by the CLARA (Cancéropôle Lyon Auvergne Rhône-Alpes) to the best student oral presentation.


CNET 2018 is organized by the CNRS through the Mobil-ET network (GDR 3546), by the GReD laboratory and the Clermont Auvergne University.
