20–23 May 2019 International Symposium on Fungal Stress – ISFUS 2019

São José dos Campos, SP, Brazil

The Fungal Kingdom is responsible for many ecosystem services as well as many industrial and agricultural products. Nevertheless, how these fungal species function and carry out these services is dependent on their capacity to grow under different stress conditions caused by a variety of abiotic factors such as ionizing radiation, UV radiation, extremes of temperature, acidity and alkalinity, and environments of low nutritional status, low water activity, or polluted with, e.g. toxic metals or xenobiotics. The International Symposium on Fungal Stress – ISFUS will present renowned speakers that work with fungal stress in the areas of Industrial Mycology, Agricultural Mycology, and Medical Mycology.

24–27 June 2019 7th Conference on Physiology of Yeasts and Filamentous Fungi (7th PYFF)

Milan, Italy

The EFB and the organisers of PYFF7 are delighted to invite you to Milan to attend the 7th Conference on Physiology of Yeast and Filamentous Fungi. Milan is famous for fashion and design, commerce and finance, food and football, and culture and education ( It is home to multiple Universities and is a biotechnology hub for the north of Italy. PYFF7 will be hosted by the University of Milano-Bicocca (UNIMIB), located in the northeast of the city and linked to the centre and to the other parts of the city by train (Greco Pirelli railway station), surface transits and subway.

The aim of the PYFF series is to bring together a strong interdisciplinary cohort of researchers, at all stages of their careers, who share an interest in applied and basic aspects of the physiology of yeasts and filamentous fungi. The series has been running since 2001 and attracts a broad spread of researchers from academia and industry. PYFF7 is coming at a key juncture in the development of this field. During the last few years, the explosion of comparative and functional genomics, the development of system and synthetic biology and the expansion of metabolic and evolutionary engineering, have boosted our understanding of these eukaryotic microbes and led to exciting developments in the biotechnological, food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

Eaton Hotel, Hong Kong

Developments in the field of metagenomics have allowed researchers to explore the diverse microbiota in the human body. Research has shown that the microbiome is linked to natural immunity, metabolism, behavioural traits, and broadly speaking, plays an instrumental role in health and disease. With large-scale collaborative projects underway and sequencing data placed in the public domain, there is a rich source of information for researchers and companies looking for opportunities in this exciting field. Increasingly, there are indications that the human microbiome is key to curative and preventative medicine so efforts are being focused on expanding investment opportunities, performing more clinical trials and spurring innovative research in this area. Coupled with an increasing focus on healthy living and a therapeutics market that is expected to grow to $1.2 trillion by 2016, microbiome research is set to make waves in the science and medical world through its application in preventative treatments, cures, therapies and supplements.

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
Synthetic Biology

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.
