We are pleased to announce the 23rd annual meeting organized by the French research community working on transposable elements (CNET). This event gathers researchers interested in transposable elements, including population and comparative genomics, molecular and cellular mechanisms, ecology and evolution. This year the meeting will take place July 4–6 in Gif-sur-Yvette, near Paris. 

We invite contributions including molecular, genetics and cellular studies, as well as bioinformatics and mathematical modeling approaches, applied to a wide range of model organisms (prokaryotes, plants, yeast, insects, ciliates, vertebrates, ...). The program will include four keynote speakers, selected talks and ample time for poster presentation and discussions. Junior researchers are particularly encouraged to apply for oral presentations.
