Meeting overview: This conference focuses on the biology of diverse prokaryotic and lower eukaryotic systems. It is the major annually occurring international meeting devoted to this subject area and is often a conference where "emerging" genetic systems as well as "novel model systems" are first described.


The meeting is open to researchers working in the fields of genetic exchange, prokaryotic biology and related areas, including DNA repair, restriction-modification systems, recombination pathways, thermophilic biology and Archaeal biology.


A strength of the meeting is the diversity of systems represented. This diversity has provided a fertile environment for new ideas and for applying well-established concepts to newly emerging systems.


Additionally, this has always been, and will continue to be, a meeting where graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are given the opportunity to present their work.
