The Gordon Research Seminar on Sensory Transduction in Microorganisms is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The 2016 STIM GRS will focus on recent advances
in cutting-edge molecular genetics, cell biology, and biochemistry to better understand
signaling networks, intercellular communication, and multicellularity in the
bacterial world. Specific topics will include gene regulation, mechanisms of
motility, community behavior, as well as sensory transduction in two-component
signaling systems, chemotaxis systems, and non-canonical signaling networks. The
meeting will conclude with a mentorship panel focusing on scientific careers in
a diversity of settings.
