Gordon Research Conferences : Applied & Environmental Microbiology

July 10-15, 2011 Mount Holyoke College South Hadley, MA, USA

February 16, 2011

The topic of the 2011 Gordon Conference on Applied and Environmental Microbiology is : Functional Interactions from Molecules to Biomes. The Conference will present and discuss cutting-edge research in the field of applied and environmental microbiology, with a focus on understanding the functional interactions between microorganisms and their environment at levels ranging from molecules to biomes. The Conference will feature a wide range of topics, such as how microbes interface with each other and with “macrobes”, the evolution of microbial species and their genomes, the role of small molecules in “microbial conversations”, microbial metal interactions and redox processes, as well as applications of biodegradation, bioremediation and bioenergy.

Preliminary program :

A list of preliminary session topics and speakers is displayed below (discussion leaders are noted in italics). The detailed program is currently being developed by the Conference Chair and will be available by March 10, 2011. Please check back for updates.

  • Functional Interactions Among Microbes (Colin Murell / James Prosser)
  • Who is There - Who is Active ? (Lee Kerkhof / Noah Fierer / Jennifer Biddle / Tim Urich)
  • Small Molecules and Microbial Conversations (Julian Davies / Helen Blackwell / Jon Clardy)
  • Microbes, Minerals and Redox Processes (Timothy McDermott / Diane Newman / Kirsten Küsel / Yong-Guan Zhu)
  • Evolution of Bacterial Species and their Genomes (Rob Knight / Jeffrey Lawrence / Daniel Gibson)
  • Microbes in the Cryobiosphere (Vanya Miteva / Jody Deming / David Gilichinsky / Alison Murray)
  • Symbiotic Interactions : Microbes in Macrobes (Birgitta Bergman / Ute Hentschel / Michele Nishiguchi)
  • Biodegradation and Bioremediation : Quite Anoxic and Just a Bit Toxic (Paul Hatzinger / Ralf Rabus / Ruth Richardson / Rainer Meckenstock)
  • The Noblest : Alcohol - From Beer to Bioenergy (Willy Verstraete / Doug Eveleigh / Charlie Bamforth)

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 12, 2011.
