Registration is open for British Yeast Group 2021

15 April 2021

Registration is now open for British Yeast Group 2021: The future of yeast research, taking place digitally from 7—9 December.

British Yeast Group 2021 will be an opportunity for yeast researchers in the UK and Ireland to meet virtually to present and discuss their latest research. The three-day programme will include invited speakers, offered paper presenters, flash poster presentations, live poster sessions and break-out discussions. It will also be an opportunity to reflect on the current state of yeast research and discuss the directions in which the field should move in the future. To that end, the programme will include a panel discussion, chaired by Nobel Laureate, Paul Nurse, focusing on the future of yeast research, in which questions and comments will be welcome from the audience.

The key topics for this meeting will be:

  • Cell and developmental biology
  • Evolution and ecology
  • Synthetic and systems biology
  • Biotechnology
  • Yeasts and disease

More details regarding the programme will be available soon via the event page.

Submit your abstract for this Focused Meeting and present your research. The deadline to submit your abstract is 20 September.
