British Yeast Group: Embracing Variation - a view from Twitter
Posted on July 5, 2018 by Kaisa Berg
The British Yeast Group: Embracing Variation 2018 Focused Meeting took place in Leicester between 27–29 June. This year's meeting included eight sessions, 18 offered papers, 17 posters and a full social programme offering everything from a beer tasting to a live band. We’ve turned to Twitter to look at some of the highlights of the meeting.
During the three-day meeting, an expansive programme with a variety of talks offered something for everyone.
