This section contains resources available on a temporary basis to go explore certain subjects in the form of seminars, conferences and online training. All events are free but require to register. Some events also have recordings of passed events. Some of these events are more related to developmental biology than others, we decided to include all biology so that you can broaden your horizons while staying confined at home.

Vertebrate Gastrulation Zoom Talks
Gastrulation is a topic that occupies a central place in developmental biology and, in the context if vertebrates, is on the the threshold of a renaissance. The Vertebrate Gastrulation Zoom Talks (VGZT) will start on July 2nd and will be running on a weekly basis until Christmas. You can follow details of the series on Twitter. Attendance requires registration which can be done here. Registration will lead to further information about the talks.
(Virtual!) Mechanics in Developmental Biology
Aims at gathering experimental biologists, theoretical physicists, image analysts, tool developers interested in mechanics in developing organisms. Registration is free but mandatory. The meeting will be held on June 12th.
Worm Talk 2020
The Weird Worm Advisory Council will graciously attempt to resolve your genetic conundrums, experimental anomalies, and any other nematode-related issues during LIVE and INTERACTIVE talks via Zoom.
Virtual Plant Science Talks by Plantae
Each week a well-recognized researcher in plant science and another nearer the beginning of their career give seminars to deliver a broad range of scientific topics, facilitate interesting discussions, and provide unique networking opportunities. These virtual events are free and open to all.
SpiraliaBase virtual lab meetings
A recently formed coalition of scientists who study the largest and most diverse clade of animals alive, the Spiralia. They organize regular virtual lab meetings.
Genetic regulation and mammalian development: enhancer sequences (in French)
Due to the special circumstances associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Collège de France lecture by Denis Duboule will be given in the form of webinars, live and therefore on the days and times initially planned. The Zoom software will be used and the URL address to which to connect will be made available on the Collège de France website each week, a few days before the course.
World Wide Neuro
This is a new and an ongoing effort to continue, expand and democratize the Oxford Neurotheory Forum, bringing it into the online realm, and making seminars green and accessible from anywhere on the planet. They invite researchers from other institutions to participate. Join, invite speakers and organize online seminars, host on any teleconferencing platform (Zoom, Crowdcast, etc) and advertise via this website.
Fragile Nucleosome is a new online discussion group for scientists interested in chromatin and gene regulation. Fragile Nucleosome is active in two spaces: one is the Discord server where several hundred scientists chat informally, the other is the organization of weekly virtual seminars on Zoom.
