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
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.
Toxins 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.

The Conference Chairs
The Sirata Beach sits on St Pete’s Beach it’s located just 10 minutes away from Downtown St Petersburg. Situated just 29 miles from Tampa International Airport.
The well-appointed conference centre provides an ideal location for scientific research conferences while the resort is scattered with areas well suited to continuing the discussions of the day’s proceedings.
Three fantastic signature restaurants which provide delicious food & live entertainment at Sirata Beach. You’ll find fresh Florida seafood on the menu at the Compass Grille, open for fantastic daytime snacks.
The Sirata Beach guestrooms offer a comfortable retreat with varying views of the courtyard and the Gulf of Mexico with its history relating back to Pre-Triassic times. All are excellently equipped with all basic amenities including Wi-Fi (payable locally).

Please Note: This programme is subject to change. The programme will be updated regularly as information is received and we will always display the most current version here. We strongly recommend periodically reviewing this document.
We can offer 3 types of registration for the conference. Please review the available options to select the most appropriate for you. If you have any questions regarding the registration options, please get in touch via email@example.com
*Please Note: When you register with the Sharer, Academic or Industry option, we will not secure your room at that time. Until Zing Conferences receives full payment of your invoice, your room will not be reserved and places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.. We have a limited number of rooms secured at the advertised rates.
Academic or Industry rates are for the registered delegate only to stay in the room. Should you wish additional guests (such as wife, husband or children) to stay in the room with you, additional fees will be payable.
The Earlybird Rates are valid for those who register and pay the fees in full by 9th July 2016. After this date, the fees will return to the standard prices. Paying the deposit does not entitle you to Earlybird prices after this deadline has passed.
