Symposium: Exploring Genomic Landscapes

January 10-12, 2019. San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

This workshop is intended to expose young Latin American scientists to cutting edge work done by colleagues around the world in the area of genomics and gene expression regulation. To provide a wide diversity of models and mechanisms, we have selected speakers working on animal, plant and microbial systems and have strived to balance this diversity in the sessions. We provide ample time for discussion of speakers with young investigators at poster sessions and during our field activity. For the latter event, we will travel to a site in the Atacama Desert where scientists of the CGR are carrying out a 10-year long project aimed at characterizing the genomes of desert plants, animals and soil microorganisms.

Bridging cell and tissue mechanics to fate specification in developments

02–05 April 2019. Santiago, Chile

EMBO Workshop. This Workshop will bring together a cross-disciplinary collection of researchers from cell and developmental biology, tissue biophysics and theoretical physics, with the overarching goal of understanding how cells build tissues across scales during development. The workshop aims to establish mechanistic links between cell/tissue mechanics and cell fate specification during development, providing a forum for scientific interactions, the cross-fertilization of ideas, the fostering of new collaborations and the development of strategies to address emerging technical needs and close existing gaps in knowledge. The scientific content will thematically progress from cellular mechanics, to mechanics of tissue morphogenesis, to the integration of mechanics with cell fate, and ending with addressing how cell fate and self-organization can be coupled in an emergent tissue. Selected abstracts will be chosen for short talks and presented during poster sessions.

REPORT. Meeting Sociedad Mexicana de Biología del Desarrollo

2-6 October 2018, Puebla, México

Last October, the Mexican Society of Development Biology (SMBD) organized its XIII National Congress and also its first International Congress in Ex-hacienda of Chautla in Puebla, Mexico. This is a fantastic place to be isolated in a relaxed environment that allowed participants to talk about science, creating a highly collaborative and friendly environment to exchange ideas. The aim of this conference was to bring developmental biologists from other parts of the world to encourage students interested in this topic to attend the congress. On the other hand, a large number of young researchers who have arrived in Mexico as newly hired researchers were invited with the idea that they had the opportunity to present their work and also to generate collaboration opportunities with foreign and national groups. This congress brought together 35 experts, 16 which were nationals and 19 internationals. The talks were divided into 8 keynote and 27 short talks. The speakers came from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Germany, Israel, Spain, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Portugal. The International Society of Development Biologists supported to SMBD with the ISDB-MOD Lecture to bring Ginés Morata of the Center of Molecular Biology CSIC of the Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain.

Report: V Latin America Zebrafish Network Course and Symposium

LAZEN 2018

Last May, the beautiful city of Cuernavaca, Mexico, received the Latin American community of zebrafish students and researchers in the fifth edition of the Latin American Zebrafish Network (LAZEN) Course and Meeting, organized locally by Enrique Salas, Denhí Schnabel, Fernando López Casillas and Hilda Lomelí. LAZEN was born in 2010, in an initially timid initiative by four LASDB-member researchers from Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay, that quickly grew to become a thriving and adaptable forum for all regional zebrafish researchers, well beyond developmental biology.
The activity started with a full-time 7-day hands-on course, where some international instructors introduced a selected group of students to the current essential experimental approaches in zebrafish research, including CRISPR-based genome editing, transgenesis, optogenetics, techniques for cell and tissue labeling, confocal microscopy and live imaging. Lectures were also interspersed among the practicals. Students came from all over Latin America, with representatives from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela and Uruguay, in addition to a participant from Egypt. Strategically positioned social activities helped to immediately generate a highly collaborative and friendly environment among students and instructors, who spent together more than 12 hours a day.
The meeting was short (2 days) but intensive, with the participation of all the instructors and several other invited speakers, in a perfect balance of regional and international researchers, as well as covering an ever-growing diversity. Funding for both events was provided by ICGEB, UNU-Biolac and UNAM. During the meeting, a new network Board was elected, and the place for the VI LAZEN Course and Meeting was designated, coincident with LAZEN’s 10th anniversary in 2020: Peru.

International Developmental Biology Course. Quintay, January 2018

Post at The Node

Congratulation to the organizers of the 2018 edition of the Quintay Dev Biol Course !! This course is a truly career-changing experience for Latin America Developmental Biology students. The 21 students of of the Quintay 2018 Course just published a post at The Node (see link below).
Every other year developmental biologist word leaders meet in a small fishing cove in Chile called Quintay to teach and share their excitement about development to students coming from all over Latin America. The course is intended primarily for Latin American student but it is also open to no-Latin American applicants, as the interaction between the students will establish links and promote a culture of international collaboration that will further contribute to the field.
The course was initiated in 1999 when Roberto Mayor was working in Chile and it has continued, with only some brief interruptions, to these days. In the 2018 version of the course Nipam Patel and John Ewer enchanting us with the evolutionary approach to development, while Ray Keller and Roberto Mayor wandered us with the sophisticated embryological experiments on amphibian. Kate Whitlock showed the beauty of zebrasfish embryos and Alejandro Sanchez-Alvarado amazed us with the regenerative power of planarian. The course ended with Claudio Stern and Andrea Streit teaching chick development. This year the course was supported by EMBO, SDB and The Company of Biologist and, as in previous versions, the best student from the Quintay course was selected to attend the Embryology course in Woods Hole, USA.

REPORT: Chilean Developmental Biology Network

4th Meeting RiBiD, Santiago, Chile. 5th January 2018

"The IV RiBiD-Chile (Red de Investigadores en Biología del Desarrollo) meeting was held at the School of Medicine of Universidad deChile last 5th January. Around a hundred of researchers met and attended 15 talks, including plenary lectures by Prof Roberto Mayor (UCL, UK) and Guillermo Lanuza (Instituto Leloir, Argentina).
This meeting had the goal to bring together the Chilean scientific community working in developmental biology, stem cell biology, regeneration and ageing. But more important, it was the opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to show their scientific work and get feedback from experienced scientists. We believe that during these meetings, new collaborations and opportunities will arise for our scientific community.
We hope for the future to continue growing as a community and to keep organizing exciting meeting every summer.
