‚ÄčThe 13th International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS), held in Hawaii, USA, is one of the largest coral reef conference. It boasts a varied audience, encompassing people from all corners of academia, governmental and non-governmental organisations.

In total, the Symbiomics Lab gave five talks and five posters, which were generally well-received. Several members were also part of an epigenetics session, updating interested participants about current advances and fielding questions from them.

Other than a missing poster tube that took significant effort to retrieve, the conference was a fairly smooth and successful one--and considering the exotic location, many amongst us took the chance to indulge in some R&R post-conference.
