Joint EEMGS meeting
and International Comet Assay Workshop
May 23rd - 26th, 2022
Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic situation,
the 14th International Comet Assay Workshop (ICAW) meeting is postponed to 2022.
According to the original plan, it will take place in Maastricht, the Netherlands.
In 2022, the ICAW meeting will also include EEMGS (Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society) meeting.
The International Comet Assay Working Group (ICAWG) was founded as a specialist interest group of the European Environmental Mutagenesis & Genomics Society (EEMGS) in 2020.
In March 2021, the ICAWG began collaborating with another affiliated group within the EEMGS - the New Investigators (NI) group.
The group was created by hCOMET COST-Action (CA15132) members and organisers of the International Comet Assay Workshops (ICAW), a series of scientific conferences dealing with practical and theoretical aspects of the comet assay, aimed at both experienced and new users of this popular technique.
