Partners and students of the INsecTIME consortium, together with members of the Genetics department and invited speakers will entertain you by demonstrating how bugs play a pivotal role in Genetics and biomedical research, with particular focus on biological clocks.

Everyone who might be interested in having fun and learning a bit about insects and genetics! There will be activities for the whole family.
