The second day of the First International Conference of Fish and Shellfish Immunology in Vigo, Spain started off with the first of three keynote speakers. Dr. Zhanjiang (John) Liu gave a great presentation on assembling the catfish genomes (blue and channel) and respective respones to immune challenges. Bulk Segregant RNA-Seq and allele specific expression were certainly interesting aspects.
Use your imagination for allele specific expression as the resolution is better for Scenario 1.
After the keynote there were some talks, some posters; one on octopus hemocytes!
In the evening we were on our own to explore the city.
