May 19 - 22, 2014   Molecular Biology of Archaea
Paris, France   Further information
International conference series Molecular Biology of Archaea. Nearly four decades after their discovery, the Archaea have steadily gained the place they deserve in the Tree of Life. Their study has confirmed a unique biology, revealed a stunning diversity of cellular processes and molecular machineries, some of which have strong evolutionary links to their eukaryotic counterparts, and brought up a whole world of fascinating archaeal viruses. Growing genetic tractability has recently allowed a large number of functional studies, linking biochemistry and molecular biology to cell physiology. Comparative and evolutionary genomics has provided invaluable material to understand the history of molecular mechanisms, making the Archaea important models for all biologists. The conference presents an overview of forefront archaeal research.
