Emerging applications of microbes
We are pleased to announce the first edition of the VIB Conference ‘Emerging applications of microbes’. This international conference will take place June 3rd-4th 2019 in the beautiful historic city of Leuven.
We will welcome a range of world leaders from academia and industry who will discuss the latest applications and technological developments in the field of microbiology. With session topics such as metabolic engineering, synthetic biology, industrial biotechnology as well as microbial communities, we aim to provide you with a platform to discuss and exchange ideas with fellow researchers.
