If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Astrid Englezou.

After our successful Bacteriophage Applications – current and potential applications in biotechnology, agriculture and medicine event which took place 16th May 2006 and Bacteriophages: Nature and Exploitation event which took place in 22 February 2008 we are delighted to announce our follow up event. “Bacteriophages are the most abundant biological entities on earth and are major drivers of bacterial adaptive evolution. Studies on phage biology underpin our core knowledge of modern molecular biology – and phage research has provided many of the techniques and biochemical reagents used by all molecular biologists. This meeting is the third in a successful biennial series discussing the biological nature of bacteriophages, and their exploitation in basic microbiology (for genetics and functional genomics); diagnostics, ecology and evolution, phage display, vaccines, and in therapeutics in animal and human infections. The general structure of the meeting is to have short, expert presentations on this spectrum of topics, plus short Q&A sessions and offered posters. The meeting will be of interest to anyone who is currently using phages in their research work or who might be interested in the potential application of phages for basic biology, and applied topics such as bacterial diagnostics, vaccine development and phage therapy”. Meeting chair – Professor George Salmond, University of Cambridge, UK

This event will have a panel discussion session and you can submit your questions online during registration. The meeting has CPD accreditation.
