This is the FIRST live streamed only, three day professional conference discussing Bacteriophages. We have gathered together invited speakers from around the world, who you might not otherwise have access to.
Bacteriophage 2017 has an open abstract session:
Abstracts can be submitted on any subject related to Bacteriophages
Oral presentation submission deadline – 10th October 2016
Early registration deadline – 20th November 2016
Poster presentation submission deadline – 3rd January 2017
This live streamed event will discuss emerging research relating to bacteriophage structure and mechanism of action, and their application in medical and industrial biotechnologies.
Event Description: As one of the most abundant biological entities on earth, bacteriophages are major drivers of bacterial adaptive evolution through the predator-prey roles of the phage-bacterium interaction and through the adaptive impacts of lysogeny and lysogenic conversion. Bacteriophage biology underpins many biochemical reagents and technologies, indispensible for modern molecular biology, and phages continue to be exploited in several areas of biotechnology, including diagnostics, prophylaxis and other aspects of food microbiology. Furthermore, the use of bacteriophages as natural alternatives to antibiotics (known as phage therapy) are of increasing interest for the treatment of human and animal disease in the face of rising levels of antibiotic resistance. This meeting will bring together researchers working with phages across these disciplines to encourage collaboration and knowledge sharing.
Who Should Attend: This event is aimed at those interested in the biology of bacteriophages and their applications in biotechnology, including research scientists, academics and pharmaceutical professionals.
We encourage questions, discussion and debate and have a relaxed atmosphere which generates maximum interaction online.
After registration you will be connected to an online networking site where you will be able to have discussions with all participants of this event, before, during and after the meeting.

The event will be recorded and available for all registered delegates up to a month after the event. So if you can’t manage all the days, or the different time zones, you can still have access to the full event.
A Euroscicon live streamed event gives you access to a wider range of international speakers at a fraction of the cost of a real world event. Furthermore, you no longer have to worry about travel or accommodation expenses, or any arrangements you have which clash with our events.
