ABOUT

The goal of the symposium is to bring together scientists at the forefront of international research in the sex determination field in diverse vertebrate systems, such as amphibians, fishes, birds, reptiles, monotreme, marsupial, and eutherian mammals, including domesticated species, mice, and humans. It is nearly impossible to keep up with the advances made in so many diverse vertebrate systems. This virtual symposium will provide the opportunity to exchange information and advance our understanding of the process of sex determination, sex differentiation, disorders and differences of sex development, and environmental impacts on this process. The virtual symposium will also foster interactions among senior and junior members of the field, thus contributing to career development.
