Map and Directions

This event will discuss the many roles of bacteriophages, ranging from fundamental biological research to their use in medical and industrial biotechnologies.  Topics will include  uses of phages for therapeutics, food manufacture, delivery vectors, drivers of microbiota structure reporters of microbiome diversity, and their  role on the environment 

This event  has CPD accreditation and an open oral and poster session.  Abstracts can be submitted on any subject related to Bacteriophages

The Deadline for abstract submissions for oral presentation is Oct10th 2014
Abstracts for poster presentation only can be submitted up to two weeks before the event
