Bethesda, MD - The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) announces the opening of registration for the Science Research Conference (SRC): Mechanism and Regulation of Prokaryotic Transcription.
The 2013 FASEB Science Research Conference on Mechanism and Regulation of Prokaryotic Transcription will convene Sunday, June 23 in Saxton Rivers, VT. The "Vermont Transcription Meeting," first held in 1991, has emerged as the premier forum for advances in basic transcriptional mechanisms in prokaryotes and the interface of basic mechanism with microbial cell and systems biology.
This year's meeting will add a new focus on the interface of synthetic biology with basic transcriptional mechanisms. In addition to 36 invited speakers, 18 platform talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. The meeting features vibrant poster sessions in a relaxed Vermont setting, with ample time for individual and small group discussions.
FASEB SRC has announced a total of 34 SRCs in 2013. To register for an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2013 SRCs, please visit www.faseb.org/SRC.
Since 1982, FASEB SRC has offered a continuing series of inter-disciplinary exchanges that are recognized as a valuable complement to the highly successful society meetings. Divided into small groups, scientists from around the world meet intimately and without distractions to explore new approaches to those research areas undergoing rapid scientific changes.
In efforts to expand the SRC series, potential organizers are encouraged to contact SRC staff. Proposal guidelines can be found at www.faseb.org/SRC.
FASEB is composed of 26 societies with more than 100,000 members, making it the largest coalition of biomedical research associations in the United States. FASEB enhances the ability of scientists and engineers to improve--through their research--the health, well-being and productivity of all people. Our mission is to advance health and welfare by promoting progress and education in biological and biomedical sciences through service to our member societies and collaborative advocacy.
