Translate signaling between Microbial Cells. 

This conference will be held at Classic Center.

Bacteria are the paradigm for unicellular life, yet they also exhibit elaborate coordinated behaviors that often defy unicellularity. Research reveals that a wide range of bacteria can communicate by diverse mechanisms. In most cases these microbial conversations occur through the exchange of diffusible signals, although there are also clear examples of contact-dependent communication.

At this conference, explore the chemical and physical signaling mechanisms engaging bacteria and the communication networks leading these processes. Exchange new ideas with leading scientists from around the world, engage with your peers to foster the next generation of scientists to work in bacterial communication, and attract other researchers (particularly those in systems and synthetic biology, evolution and ecology, and chemistry) to this exciting field.
