2nd Zing Bacterial Cell Biology Conference

09 Dec 2013 - 12 Dec 2013 - Xcaret, Mexico



Bookmark and Share


The last decade has seen a revolution in our understanding of the cellular organization of bacterial cells, brought about by advances in microscopy and the application of novel cell biological methods. Rather than being simply ?bags of chemicals?, bacterial cells are now known to be highly organized with many cellular components targeted with exquisite precision to particular locations, or undergoing remarkable spatial dynamics. The Conference will review the current state of the art, both in methodology and its application to some of the most important functions in the cell, including (but not limited to) chromosome replication and dynamics, gene expression, cell morphogenesis and polarity, cell division, and cell motility. The major experimental model organisms will be well represented, as well as a range of less mainstream organisms chosen because they support novel methodological advances or illustrate important biological problems. Speakers will be drawn from the leading experts in each area, and the line up will expose delegates to both the major established players and a selection of up and coming research leaders. Additional speakers will be selected from the submitted abstracts to present short talks.
