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.

After the keynote there were some talks, some posters; one on octopus hemocytes! octo

In the evening we were on our own to explore the city. city
