Dear colleagues,
 
We are pleased to announce the AMMR 2016 symposium, which will be held at the University of Vigo – Faculty of Biology, Vigo (Spain). This symposium aims to highlight the latest research on marine mussels (Mytilus spp.) from a multidisciplinary perspective, including studies from the fields of genomics, proteomics, immunology, physiology, ecology and aquaculture among others. Marine mussels represent an excellent study system in evolutionary biology, ecology, ecotoxicology, climate change and more importantly, they are a key species in aquaculture, being commercialised worldwide.
 
The symposium will include 7 talks from the invited speakers, 5 short talks from participants and a poster session on Wednesday 26. On Thursday 27 we will have a boat trip to Cies Islands.
