Description

Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology have never been more important topics than they are today. In these exciting times, we are proud to announce the 10th edition of the highly successful international conference series on the Molecular Epidemiology and Evolutionary Genetics of Infectious Diseases (MEEGID). Together, the MEEGID congress series and its companion journal, Infection, Genetics and Evolution, represent the main forum for cross-fertilization between evolutionary science and biomedical research on infectious diseases. This major scientific event will be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from 3 - 5 November 2010.
Scientific Topics
Molecular epidemiology
Evolutionary genetics, genomics, proteomics
Mathematical modeling & bio-informatics
Molecular diagnostics
Population biology
Genetics, population biology and morphometrics of vectors
Host genetic susceptibility to infectious diseases
MEEGID is a wide-ranging conference that deals with the molecular evolution of all pathogens: viruses, pathogenic bacteria, fungi, parasites and prions of medical, veterinary or agronomical relevance.

Through plenary lectures and symposia, special emphasis will be given to HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, ebola and influenza.

To supplement the invited programme, abstracts are invited for poster presentation at the conference on the following topics. A limited number of submissions will be selected for presentation as short oral communications within the conference programme. Coverage includes:

Molecular epidemiology
Evolutionary genetics, genomics, proteomics
Mathematical modeling & bio-informatics
Molecular diagnostics
Population biology
Genetics, population biology and morphometrics of vectors
Host genetic susceptibility to infectious diseases

All pathogens and infectious models will be considered, including those of veterinary or agronomical relevance.
