Event description


Spatiotemporal organization of bacterial cells

14-16 March 2018 | Marburg, Germany

About the conference

This international conference focuses on the molecular mechanisms that underlie the spatiotemporal organization of fundamental cellular processes in bacteria. It covers a wide range of topics, including

  • Cell division & morphogenesis

  • DNA organization & segregation

  • Positioning of cell surface structures

  • Assembly of large multi-protein complexes

The conference will provide the opportunity to present and discuss the latest developments in the field. It will bring together researchers from a range of different disciplines, including cell biology, biochemistry, biological physics, and synthetic biology.
