Overview

Yeasts are potent model eukaryotes that have been used for over a century to explore fundamental and applied aspects of cell function. Annual gatherings of the British yeast community have taken place since the 1980s, with the only exception being the pandemic-related interruption in 2020. The Microbiology Society has adopted the last meetings in its Focused Meeting programme.

The 2022 British Yeast Group (BYG) meeting will take place on 7-9 September 2022. BYG 2022 highlights the theme ‘From Genomes to Cells’, covering diverse topics from DNA metabolism to organelle and cell function. The programme will feature attractive, assorted talks from invited speakers and will provide plenty of opportunities for early career researchers to present their research through posters and offered oral presentations. The meeting will include a varied social agenda to make new connections and strengthen the yeast community in Britain and beyond.

Key topics

  • DNA replication and repair
  • Chromosome organisation
  • Gene and RNA regulation
  • Organelle function

Organising committee:

  • Jürg Bähler (University College London, UK)
  • Jacqueline Hayles (The Francis Crick Institute, UK)

Further information will be announced in the build up to the meeting on our social media channels and you can follow us on Twitter @MicrobioSoc using the hashtag #BYG22
