Evo-Devo JC: Origin of snakes

Hi everybody!

This Friday (11th) in Viikki campus Filipe Oliveira da Silva will be leading the Evo-Devo journal club with a talk on skull shape in snakes and its implications implications about snakes origins (soon to be presented at the 75th SVP meeting).

Filipe’s research spans over a large set of subjects and techniques in both palaeontology and developmental biology that should satisfy the interest of many. You are most welcome to join the discussion on this long-controverted subject starting at 11:00 in Biocenter 1, room 4008 on the 4th floor (in front of the coffee room).

See you there,
