Yeasts are very versatile, model unicellular eukaryotes that have been extensively used for over a century to explore fundamental aspects of living systems. Annual gatherings of the British yeast community have taken place since the 1980s and the Microbiology Society have been pleased to incorporate the last two meetings in its annual Focused Meeting programme.

The 2019 British Yeast Group meeting, taking place in Newcastle, will explore the theme of Discovery to Impact. The programme will feature a range of keynote talks from invited speakers and will also give young yeast researchers the opportunity to present their recent research results through a series of posters and offered oral presentations. The meeting will also feature a varied social programme offering delegates plenty of opportunities to make new connections, discuss research projects and to strengthen relationships in the British yeast community.

This Focused Meeting will take place from 26-28 June 2019 at County Hotel, Newcastle, UK.

Organising committee:

  • Janet Quinn (Newcastle University, UK)
  • Julian Rutherford (Newcastle University, UK)
  • Simon Whitehall (Newcastle University, UK)
  • Manolis Papamichos Chronakis (Newcastle University, UK)
