BacNet/08 will cover the mechanisms of information collection, integration and implementation in bacteria. Research in the past decades has unveiled the metabolic and regulatory circuitry of bacterial cells in unprecedented detail. This provides an excellent opportunity to analyse the physiology of these organisms on a systems level using quantitative, model-driven approaches. The strength of the meeting is that it will bring together cutting edge research from related but often non-intersecting fields to allow cross-fertilization of ideas and concepts. The meeting will actively involve molecular microbiologists, systems engineers, computational modellers, mathematicians, bioinformaticists and systems biologists. BacNet/08 will present sessions on Development, Global Regulators and Second Messengers, Modelling and Engineering Networks, Microbial Cell Biology and Imaging, Regulatory Networks and Switches, Host-Microbe Interactions, and Cell-Cell Communication, and will feature world-leading speakers in all of these fields.

The ESF Research Conferences Scheme provides the opportunity for leading scientists and young researchers to meet for discussions on the most recent developments in their fields of research. It acts as a catalyst for creating new synergistic contacts throughout Europe and the rest of the world. It develops principally through the establishment of long-term partnerships between the ESF and national and international organisations, including universities.
