The Gordon Research Seminar on the Molecular Basis of Microbial One-Carbon Metabolism is a unique meeting for young researchers at the graduate, postdoctoral or early career level to present and exchange cutting-edge research in an environment of global young experts in the field.
Microbial One-Carbon Metabolism sparked the transition of abiotic Earth to a planet with early life. These early carbon fixing and energy conserving metabolic pathways are still employed by many contemporary organisms that play key roles in the global carbon cycle and in a number of industrial processes. This meeting will be a unique international forum to discuss recent advances in the fields of fundamental and applied research ranging from biochemistry, physiology, ecology, evolution, metabolic engineering and synthetic biology investigating Microbial One-Carbon Metabolism.
The seminar will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by May 6, 2022. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Information section above.
Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated GRC. The GRS opens with a 1-hour introductory session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a poster session, dinner and a 2-hour session in the evening. Sunday morning begins with breakfast and is followed by another 2-hour session, a second poster session, and lunch. A final 1-hour session takes place just after lunch, and the associated GRC begins later that evening.
