About the Workshop
BacNet19 will continue in frame of a highly successful conference series and further consolidate the BacNet series as a major international meeting in Europe that attracts leading researchers and young scientists working in the field of molecular microbiology with a special focus on signaling and regulatory networks in bacteria. The majority of cellular functions, such as stress response, information processing, and behavioral control, are executed by complex networks. However, our understanding how these networks operate together within a cell, and how they are adaptable for populations and multi-species communities is still very limited. BacNet19 will cover most recent advances in research on signaling and regulatory networks in bacteria, and help to shape this rapidly developing field in Europe and worldwide. Progress in the field requires interdisciplinary approaches, combining the tools of molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics and computational analyses. Advances in the field hold great promise to revolutionize our understanding in bacterial physiology, pathogenicity, ecology and evolution, and will also contribute to the design of networks used in biotechnological and biomedical applications. BacNet19 will bring together 160 participants, including 27 invited speakers. BacNet19 will offer young researchers ample opportunity to present their work and to discuss it with leading scientists.

About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
