Protein Secretion in Bacteria Conference

9th – 12th November 2016

We are proud to announce the 1st Zing Protein Secretion in Bacteria Conference will take place in November 2016.

About 30% of the proteins synthesized by bacteria are transported across or integrated into cell membranes. Many of these secreted and membrane-associated proteins play critical roles in cell physiology, intracellular communication, promoting survival in specific environments, and pathogenesis. Bacteria use a remarkable diversity of pathways to transport proteins across or into membranes, some of which have come to light only very recently. The goal of this conference is to bring together investigators who study these different transport pathways to discuss important recent advances, to exchange ideas, and to identify common themes. A wide variety of topics will be covered, including the mechanisms of protein translocation across membranes, the assembly of translocation channels, the biogenesis of integral membrane proteins, the structural biology of transport machines, the regulation and energetics of transport reactions, and emerging transport phenomena.

This conference will feature presentations by both established and early career investigators, and should be appropriate for both academic researchers and scientists in industry who are interested in developing novel antimicrobials or harnessing bacterial secretion pathways for biotechnological applications.

Poster Prize Sponsor

TrendsinMicrobiology_inline Trends in Microbiology provides a multidisciplinary forum for the discussion of all aspects of microbiology: from cell biology and immunology to genetics and evolution, and ranges across virology, bacteriology, protozoology and mycology. The Poster Prize Winner at the conference will receive a personal subscription to this journal.


Media Partner

Toxins-01Toxins is an international, peer-reviewed open access journal which provides an advanced forum for studies related to toxins and toxinology. It publishes reviews, regular research papers and short communications. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible.
