The ProkaGENOMICS conference series has been launched in 2003 by the GenoMik funding initiative of the BMBF and took place every two years, until 2011. In 2015 the North German Center of Microbial Genomics (www.nzmg.de) will revive this successful conference series devoted to all aspects of microbial genomics, one of the most rapidly evolving fields in molecular life sciences. The increasing power of high-throughput technologies now allows simultaneous examination of thousands of genes, transcripts, proteins, and metabolites. These so-called Omics technologies have become the new mantra in microbial genomics. They are powerful tools that allow monitoring of regulatory processes genome-wide under hundreds of different conditions, even single-cell analyses are becoming possible. The ProkaGENOMICS 2015 conference will address this challenging field of microbiology.
The topics of the conference will be as follows:
Microbial Genomics in Biotechnology & Industry
Microbial Communities & MetaOmics
Functional Genomics of Infectious Diseases
Host Microbe Interplay
Global Gene Regulation & Proteome Dynamics
Systems Biology & Single Cell Genomics
ProkaGENOMICS 2015 will be the perfect occasion for scientists from Germany and abroad to exchange and discuss new knowledge and technologies with the best international researchers in this exciting field of microbiology.
