Meeting overview: This conference focuses on the biology of a diverse range of prokaryotic organisms. It is an annually occurring, international meeting devoted to this broad subject area.


The meeting is open to researchers working in any field related to prokaryotic biology, including gene regulation, microbial genetics, bacterial pathogenesis, coordinated microbial behaviors, responses to environmental stimuli, microbial ecology, microbial biochemistry and microbial physiology.


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 trainees (graduate students and post-doctoral fellows) are given the opportunity to present their work.


The location: The 2023 conference will be held in the Dao House, a retreat/conference center just outside Estes Park, Colorado. This one-of-a-kind conference venue provides a unique environment that promotes interactions between trainees, PIs and keynote speakers. For more information on the conference venue, as well as information on internet/phone access please see the “Conference Venue” tab
