The 7th ASM Conference on Biofilms took place in Chicago, IL October 24-29, 2015. Here, some highlights are given from the meeting.
Interesting paper published by the group of Kevin Foster (Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford) that uses modeling approach to understand microbiome stability and found that microbial competition dampens cooperative networks and increases stability therefore benefiting the host.
Biofilms7 will take place during 26th-28th June 2016 in the city of Porto, one of the most exciting cities of northern Portugal, several times elected best European destination. Biofilms7 will be hosted by the biofilm research groups of University of Minho and University of Porto. This event belongs to a series of well-known conferences. The two most recent ones were held in Vienna (Biofilms 6) and Paris (Biofilms 5). The topics of Biofilms7 are already defined.
