Welcome to Viruses of Microbes 2023

line
vert-line

The series of biannual conferences on Viruses of Microbes, which was launched in Paris in 2010 and since then travelled all around Europe, will reach Tbilisi in 2023. The organizers are delighted to announce this conference, which will be held in Tbilisi, Georgia, on 3-7, 2023. The conference marks a new era in viral research which has begun with the recognition of viruses of microorganisms – viruses of bacteria, archaea, and microbial eukaryotes as predominant component of the biosphere and led to the identification of these viruses as major players in the global ecology, public health, microbial physiology, and evolution.

The conference will serve as a platform for discussions on all aspects of studies on viruses of bacteria, archaea and unicellular eukaryotes, including new views on virus taxonomy, and ranging from the role and diversity of viruses in different ecosystems to development of virus-inspired new technologies.

A particular session will mark the centenary of the Eliava Institute of Bacteriophages - which was founded by Felix d’Herelle and Giorgi Eliava in 1922 in Tbilisi, and will give an outline of current state and latest developments of application of bacteriophages in medicine, veterinary, food safely and biotechnology.

Besides the exciting scientific program, several social events will be organized, including trip to the beautiful city of Mtskheta - Old Capital of Georgia
