Conference: Paris.MicrobialEvolution.Oct2-5

10th International Meeting on Microbial Epidemiological Markers, October

2-5, 2013
The ability of microbes – bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites – to

mutate rapidly, disseminate and adapt to new hosts and environments,

forces us to increase our capabilities for the early recognition of

novel strains of pathogens, and to understand the factors that

contribute to their diversity, and dissemination. IMMEM-10

will address a variety of topics related to pathogen emergence,

population-level diversity, evolution of virulence and antibiotic

resistance, strain tracking, typing networks, public and

surveillance, novel typing approaches, high-throughput sequencing,

genomics, and epidemiology of infectious diseases. The meeting

will take place at Institut Pasteur, in the heart of Paris.
