The special issue of Integrative and Comparative Biology containing papers from the parasite manipulation symposium that Zen Faulkes and I organized is officially out. The folks involved in the symposium submitted fascinating manuscripts.
Zen wrote a post over a NeuroDojo about the long journey we went on when we decided to work together to organize a symposium on parasite manipulation of host phenotype. The post reminds me what a pleasure it was to work with Zen on this project from start to finish. I’m looking forward to seeing what Zen and I decide to work on together next!
HUGE THANKS are in order for all of the amazing speakers who participated in the symposium, and for all of the folks who worked on manuscripts for the special issue. It was a real honor to be able to work with so many brilliant scientists.
