SIMB has three very exciting meetings set for 2012:
Welcome from the Chair, Steve Van Dien
As Program Chair, it is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the 62nd Annual Meeting of the Society for Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology to be held Aug. 12-16, 2012, in Washington, DC. The program committee and I are hard at work developing an exciting program for next year’s meeting. We will have a number of sessions intended to be cross-functional, bringing people together from different disciplines that use a similar technology or approach to address problems in their respective area of research.
Recent advances in hot fields such as synthetic biology, next-gen sequencing, and computational modeling will also be featured. These technology-based sessions will complement a range of sessions exploring new frontiers in the core areas of biocatalysis, metabolic engineering, fermentation, natural products, and environmental microbiology.
