The first ASSEMBLE Plus conference will take place virtually, between 18 and 29 January 2021. The conference, “ASSEMBLE 2021 - Marine biological research at the frontier”, will showcase recent developments in marine biology and ecology; state-of-the-art technologies available at marine stations and institutes; how to access biological resources and marine research infrastructure; how to improve services provided by marine stations; and, the impact of the services provided on industry and society. In addition, it will provide an opportunity to celebrate the project’s research on genomic observatories, cryobanking marine organisms, functional genomics, instrumentation, and scientific diving.
