Welcome Plasmid Enthusiasts!

We are pleased to invite you to attend Plasmid Biology 2018 on the scenic University of Washington campus in Seattle, Washington from August 5 -10, 2018. The conference is the biennial International Symposium of the International Society for Plasmid Biology and other Mobile Genetic Elements (ISPB).

Our conference will showcase diverse topics and presenters (with established investigators, students, and post-doctoral fellows). The keynote lecture “Evolution of Antibiotic resistance” will be given Sunday evening, August 5th by Dr. Dan Andersson from the University of Uppsala, Sweden. Subsequent sessions will feature several invited talks by leading international researchers and additional oral and poster presentations chosen from submitted abstracts. The various sessions will give all attendees an opportunity to present their latest findings, with ample time for informal discussions, socializing, and networking. Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and early career scientists are particularly encouraged to attend and contribute to the meeting.

We look forward to welcoming you to Seattle in August: come to learn about exciting science related to plasmids and other mobile elements and to explore the beautiful city of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest! (Despite its reputation for rain and gray skies, August is a spectacular time to visit.)
