EMBO | EMBL Symposium: New Approaches and Concepts in Microbiology

14 Oct 2013 - 16 Oct 2013 - EMBL Heidelberg, Germany



Bookmark and Share


This symposium will cover a broad range of topics in prokaryotic biology -antibiotic resistance, transcriptional and genetic networks, bacterial communities, regulation, signaling, cell biology, pathogenesis-, with an emphasis on novel approaches that drive each field or have the potential to revolutionize future research in microbiology.

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. 

We envision that this symposium will become a must-attend conference for scientists working with bacteria and new technologies, and will turn into a series. The symposium series will remain in the interface of new technologies and new biology in prokaryotic organisms, but the biological focuses and organizers will regularly change.

Topics

Systems Microbiology

Antibiotics & Chemical Genomics

Cell Biology & Single-cell approaches

Bacterial communities

Pathogenesis

Regulation, Signaling & Transcriptional Networks
