About the Workshop

Viruses of Microbes V: Biodiversity and future applications

The central theme of this EMBO Workshop is Viruses of Microbes V: ‘Biodiversity and future applications’ of viruses infecting microbes (algae, archaea, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses). Viruses have always been a key element of microbial diversity and evolution, as well as a tool for molecular biologists to learn more about how the host cell functions. This information has also been put to productive use more recently to control infections and fouling in many areas of our modern life.
The conference talks are grouped into sessions covering key areas of ecology, host-virus dynamics, biotechnological, medical aspects, and structural biology.
A main objective of this EMBO Workshop is to stimulate new understandings of the role that viruses of microbes play in ecosystems and in the sustainable development of human technologies.

REGISTRATION CLOSED.

MORE THAN 500 PARTICIPANTS REGISTERED - THANK YOU!
