ASM - FEMS Conference on Protein Traffic in Prokaryotes

May 6-10, 2006 | Iraklio (Heraklion), Crete, Greece

Conference Scope

Protein traffic represents one of the essential, fundamental aspects of prokaryotic cell physiology. This conference will bring together people working on all aspects of protein traffic in bacteria, including scientists interested in various aspects of membrane structure and function as well as industries interested in the potential exploitation of prokaryotic protein traffic. The meeting will provide a broad and up-to-date overview of the field, with topics ranging from translocation of proteins across the plasma membrane and into other cell compartments through to extracellular secretion and assembly of cell surface structure and appendages.

The conference will be held at the Fodele Beach Hotel, 25 km outside the city of Heraklion, Crete, Greece. This beautiful Mediterranean location will provide a relaxing and refreshing atmosphere for the meeting, with the opportunity to participate in a day trip exploring the island.
