Taming Plant Viruses - Fundamental Biology to Bionanotechnology

8—10 November 2016

Atholl Palace Hotel, Pitlochry, UK

A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting

Recent advances in our understanding of virus biology have made it possible to integrate the activities of the wider plant virology community with the industry-focused work of bio-nanotechnologists.


This meeting will bring together scientists from academic and industry backgrounds, and at different career stages, wishing to apply plant viruses to plant, human and animal health challenges.


This meeting will provide opportunities to discuss concepts, share new perspectives and stimulate new collaborations, making this meeting an important step towards realizing the potential of plant virus-based nanotechnology.
