Re Demodex- I was told by a professor at UM that you have to scrape your
eyebrow hard enough so it bleeds. In other words, get deep enough into
the skin to find it. He no longer has his students do it in parasit lab
because the parents were getting upset about making their children

Third International Meeting on

"Molecular and Population Biology of Mosquitoes and Other Disease  

13 - 20 July 2007, Kolymbari, Crete, Greece


This meeting follows the organization of two EMBO Workshops on  
similar topics, held at the Orthodox Academy of Crete in the summers  
of 2003 and 2005. The abstracts of these meetings can be viewed by  
clicking the links provided above. The objective of this year's  
workshop remains the same, i.e. to bring together an international  
group of scientists to present their findings on genome organisation  
and expression, population structure and gene flow of arthropod  
disease vectors. The development of new tools and strategies (e.g.  
transgenesis, release of GM arthropods) for the control of disease  
through the control of the vectors and their impact on society will  
be one of the main issues to be discussed.

The meeting will cover a broad area of topics while maintaining a  
small size in order to foster close interactions between the  
participants. It will last one week with morning (9:00-1:00 pm) and  
evening sessions (5:00-9:00 pm). The dates indicated reflect the  
arrival/departure days, while the sessions will last from Saturday  
morning till Thursday evening. About 120 participants will be  
accepted by vote of the Organizing Committee, and as a rule, only one 

participant will be able to attend from any single lab. It is  
probable that applicant numbers will exceed the available number of  
slots. Every attempt will be made to make sure that the attendance is 

representative of the research community worldwide. The entire  
application process will be done electronically.

All participants will be required to present a fifteen minute talk on 

their work, while some exceptions may be made for younger colleagues.

The deadline for receipt of applications is March 10, 2007. For  
logistical purposes the Organising Committee will adhere strictly to  
the deadline. Please note that participation at the meeting is  
limited to the individual accepted. A registration fee of 700.00 Euro 

must be remitted upon acceptance. Local expenses in Crete (full  
board, double room occupancy) will be covered from that fee.  
Participants are expected to finance their travel to Kolymbari. Due  
to the lack of a sponsoring organization this year, we will no longer 

be able to support any participants financially.

Please inform your colleagues at your, or other institutions as due  
to lack of financial support we are unable to advertise this meeting  
in a different way.

I have read Eric's question about finding Demodex folliculorum for an
undergraduate parasitology class. I have looked for this mite for a
time without finding it too. Is there some secret? I have scraped my
forehead many times and pulled eyelashes with no real results.
I had my whole class try the scraping/ eyelash thing and no one found
anything. I have had several years experience with the light
and normally don't have trouble finding things.  Are these things that
hard to see?? Do they move at all? Mike
