First Euro-Mediterranean Agrobacterium Meeting (EMAM)

12-14 September 2016, Gif-sur-Yvette, France


The objective of this meeting is to create a scientific event that is at the forefront of fundamental research in diverse aspects of Agrobacterium biology and ecology.

The meeting will be divided into 5 sessions:

1) Agrobacterium Physiology

2) Virulence : molecular and cellular processes

3) Plant responses

4) Ecology of Agrobacterium

5) Genome biology, taxonomy and evolution

6) Gene transfer, biotechnology

The symposium will bring together about 140 participants in a rather informal atmosphere, facilitating exchanges. We also aim at proposing a highly attractive program at a moderate inscription fee to give the opportunity to researchers - in particular those at the early stage of their career – to participate to an exciting top-level scientific event. Young researchers will have the opportunity to present their work with a poster.
