Save the date – British Yeast Group: From Genomes to Cells

01 December 2021

British Yeast Group (BYG): From Genomes to Cells is scheduled to take place as an in-person, physical event on 7–9 September 2022 at University College London, UK.

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 2022 British Yeast Group: From Genomes to Cells, 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 including the organising committee members Jürg Bahler (University College London, UK) and Jacqueline Hayles (The Francis Crick Institute, UK).

This event 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.

The following key topics will be covered:

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

Further information will be announced in the build up to the meeting. Keep up to date by following us on Twitter @MicrobioSoc, using the hashtag #BYG22, and on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram.
