10th International Meeting on Microbial Epidemiological Markers (IMMEM-10)

October 2, 2013 - October 5, 2013

The ability of microbes – bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites – to mutate rapidly, disseminate and adapt to new hosts and environments, forces us to increase our capabilities for the early recognition of novel strains of pathogens, and to understand the factors that contribute to their diversity, evolution and dissemination. IMMEM-10 will address a variety of topics related to pathogen emergence, population-level diversity, evolution of virulence and antibiotic resistance, strain tracking, typing networks, public health and surveillance, novel typing approaches, high-throughput sequencing, genomics, and molecular epidemiology of infectious diseases.
The meeting will take place at Institut Pasteur, in the heart of Paris.
