Project Details


This EMBO conference in Brussels will address the diversity, evolution, ecology and environmental impact of microbial viruses, the most abundant biological entities on Earth. New developments in fundamental, (bio)technological, industrial and medical aspects of virus research will be discussed.

The exciting new and significant perspective opened by recent discoveries of viruses infecting Archaea, Bacteria and unicellular Eukarya prompted the scientific community to establish the 'International Society of Viruses of Microorganisms' (ISVM).

During this EMBO Conference we will hold the ISVM inaugural meeting. In addition, the Elsevier's "Virology" will be hosting a
special issue on the 'Viruses of Microbes' theme in which review and research articles can be submitted.

The international organizing committee has selected 26 invited speakers who will lead the themes of sessions dedicated to the most important features of microbial viruses
