“2018 Frontiers of Zoology Forum”

The 2nd Round Meeting Announcement

 

As a classical discipline in the field of life sciences, research directions in zoology and related fields such as Animal Genetics and Evolution, Animal Diversity and Protection and Utilization, and Primates and Animal Models are not only the basis of various fields of research, but also play important roles in the development of multidisciplinary integration. To track frontier research in the field of zoology, strengthen communication among researchers, and promote cooperation and development of related disciplines, we are holding the 2018 Frontiers of Zoology Forum based on the successful hosting of the forum in 2017.
