Why attend?

Summary

This symposium will cover a broad range of topics in prokaryotic biology -antibiotic-related research, network biology, bacterial communities, cell biology, regulation & signalling,  pathogenesis, evolution-, with an emphasis on novel approaches that drive each field or have the potential to revolutionize future research in microbiology.


Aims

This meeting aims to bridge the gap between traditional microbiology and systems approaches-novel technologies, by exposing microbiologists to new ways of addressing their hypotheses, and allowing systems or technology experts to get a feeling of the burning questions in the field and/or find collaborators for follow-up work or for applying their technology.

This symposium is a must-attend conference for scientists working with bacteria and new technologies, and is a continuation of a very successful first meeting in 2013: www.embo-embl-symposia.org/symposia/2013/EES13-05/.

We aim to turn this to a regular symposium occurring every 2 years. The focus will remain on the interface of new technologies and new biology in bacteria, but the thematic areas will regularly change and speaker line-ups will have no overlap between two consecutive meetings.


Topics

Bacterial Systems biology- new approaches
Single-cell approaches & Cell biology
Antibiotic action-resistance-persistance
Microbial communities/ microbiotas/symbiosis
Evolution
Pathogenesis & Infection
Regulation, Signalling & Transcriptional networks
