ASM Conference on Viral Genome Replication

Conference Scope

February 6 - 9, 2011, Banff, Alberta, Canada

The conference focused on mechanisms employed by different classes of DNA and RNA viruses for genome replication. It provided a unique podium to discuss, to compare, and to contrast the involvement of viral and cellular factors in replication processes. Biological, methodological, and clinical perspectives were covered. The transfer of knowledge from basic research to modern drug discovery and development efforts is yet another goal achieved at this meeting. Scientists in academia and industry were welcome to attend.
