Golden Tulip, Leiden, The Netherlands



A Biochemical Society Scientific Meeting


Earlybird Registration deadline: 4 April 2018

Registration is now open


Abstract Submission open for POSTERS ONLY: 4 May

Poster submission open

 

In the recent years, collaborations between biologists and physicists have generated key discoveries regarding our understanding of bacterial chromosome structure. This conference will recognize the role of inter-disciplinary work and foster new collaborations and ideas. 

 

New approaches and technologies have revolutionized the field of bacterial chromosome biology in the last fifteen years. For example, super-resolution microscopy is now being used to visualize previously  unresolved structure, genomic tools have enabled the capture of new types of proximity information on a genomic-scale and polymer physics models allow researchers to tackle questions that go far beyond the traditional biological description of chromosome structure. 

 

The Biochemical Society is pleased to offer the Members registration fee to members of the Netherlands Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (NVBMB: https://nvbmb.kncv.nl) for this meeting.

 

Topics in this meeting may be invited to submit to our journal, Biochemical Society Transactions, or other publication published by Portland Press, the wholly-owned trading subsidiary of the Biochemical Society.

 

 

Oral communication slots are available at this meeting. All attendees, particularly researchers in the early stages of their career, are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration as an oral communication.

 

Grants and Bursaries

The Biochemical Society offers a programme of grants and bursaries supporting research, attendance at scientific conferences and the sponsorship of events.
