There has to our knowledge never been a meeting focusing specifically on the
Bacillus cereus group of bacteria. We (The Scientific Organizing Comittee) have
therefore agreed to arrange a meeting in May in Oslo to discuss
THE MOLECULAR BIOLOGY OF B. cereus, B. thuringiensis and B. anthracis
Venue: The Norwegian Medical Association Conference Centre SORIA MORIA, in the
hills just outside Oslo.
Time: After lunch May 23 - 25 1997.
Scientific Organizing Committee:
Lars Andrup, Copenhagen, Denmark (Fax 45 39270107)
Anne-Brit Kolstø, Oslo, Norway (Fax 47 22694130)
Didier Lereclus, Paris, France (Fax 33 1 45688938)
Jacques Mahillon, Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium (Fax 32 10473109)
Michele Moch, Paris, France (Fax 33 1 45688954)
Topics to be discussed include
Gene transfer and genetic element stability
Toxins (including Cry toxins) and bacteriocins
Genomics (chromosomal and large plasmids)
Since B.cereus, B.thuringiensis and B.anthracis are closely related, a common
discussion of these themes will be of interest to many of us. Speakers will be
mainly selected from the registered participants. We will invite you to join us
in Oslo for this workshop.
