Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In view of the growing worldwide interest in Myxozoa, a daylong meeting dedicated to these fish parasites was held on September 14, 2005. The special gathering included two sessions of oral presentations (Biology, Development and Phylogeny; and Myxozoan-host interactions) and a myxozoan poster session, all of which provided an updated overview on contemporary topics of Myxozoan research. The oral sessions included 17 presentations, encompassing a diverse range of Myxozoan research topics. A total of 20 posters dealing with Myxozoan topics were presented in the session; one of which won a best poster prize. A round-table discussion forum that dealt with various current topics, new tools and approaches with the objective of stimulating new areas of Myxozoan research and encouraging international collaboration, concluded the day.
