Silvia will chair a symposium on language genetics at the forthcoming BNA2017 conference, Birmingham 10-13 March.. The aim of the symposium is to cover the most recent advances in language genetic research going from phenotype definitions to the functional dissection of genetic associations using different animal models. The symposium is sponsored by the Genetics Society.
We are extremely grateful for the continuing support to our work by the Royal Society. We have been awarded a 15k research grant funding new developments in our project aimed at modeling candidate genes for dyslexia in zebrafish. This grant will provide us with specialized equipment and will fund key experiments.
