Welcome on the GDR3581 website

Multifaceted cilia and flagella

A large number of French laboratories are interested in cilia and flagella and decided to get together in a GDR ("Groupe De Recherche" supported by the CNRS). The member teams are studying these fascinating organelles through different model systems and with different point of view. With this GDR our goal is to encourage knowledge transmission by facilitating the scientific exchanges and catalysing new collaborations. Creating a GDR was a natural follow-up to the regular meetings organized each year: the "French Meeting on Cilia, Flagelle and Centrioles" or CFC. This website should provide an updated information on what's going on in the french cilia fields.
