Overview

The ASE is a dynamic community of teachers, technicians and other professionals supporting science education in the UK. Each year the Microbiology Society showcases its educational resources in the exhibition throughout this educators’ conference. Under the banner of Biology in the Real World* we also offer a trouble-shooting practical microbiology session and a speaker who talks about contemporary microbiology as part of this series.

Our speaker for 2013 was Tom Ellis (Imperial College London), who gave his talk ‘Brewing-up the technologies of tomorrow with synthetic biology’.

We also ran practical sessions focussing on our algae practicals and trouble-shooting problematic microbiology demonstrations, hosted by James Redfern and Dr John Schollar.
