Workshop on molecular aspects of desiccation tolerance

23-27 March, 2014
Pornichet, Loire Atlantique, France

We are pleased to announce the forthcoming workshop on the molecular aspects of desiccation tolerance to be held in Pornichet (Loire Atlantique, France) on March 23-27th 2014. 

The overall goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas on desiccation tolerance and the development of new scientific collaborations. It will encompass the latest findings in the molecular aspects leading to survival in the dry sate across all kingdoms, including micro-organisms, fungi plants and animals.

The venue takes place in a resort facing the Atlantic Ocean located in a beautifully scenic and are easily accessible from Paris or Nantes, France. 

The meeting will be limited to around 90 participants.

We plan to make this a truly memorable meeting, and we very much look forward to seeing you there.

L'objectif de ce colloque est de fournir un forum où les chercheurs pourront échanger leurs informations et idées sur la tolérance à la dessiccation et développer de nouvelles collaborations. Y seront présentés les résultats les plus récents sur les aspects moléculaires associés à la survie à l'état sec  dans l'ensemble des règnes vivants en incluant micro-organismes, champignons, plantes et animaux.

Le colloque, qui aura lieu à Pornichet et faisant face à l'océan Atlantique, est limité à 90 participants.
