DBSUMI meeting postponed until 2021

The Developmental Biology of the Sea Urchin and Marine Invertebrates (DBSUMI) is an international meeting where research on echinoderms and other marine invertebrates is shared in workshops, poster sessions and presentations. We had hoped to release the new Echinobase and demonstrate the new features at the DBSUMI meeting however the current global pandemic has prevented this. 

DBSUMI has been rescheduled for April 14-18, 2021 at MBL, Woods Hole MA.

Check Echinobase or the conference website for updates.
