4th International Seminar

4th International Seminar "CRB-Anim: Past, Present and Future", May 30-31, 2022: abstracts are available!

The 4th international seminar "CRB-Anim: past, present and future" took place on May 30-31, 2022 in Paris. The seminar illustrated the main achievements of the project over the last 10 years, followed by discussions on the perspectives of evolution of CRB-Anim in the next 5 years, as the animal pillar of the national research infrastructure for biological resources, RARe (https://agrobrc-rare.org).
