The vifabio Calendar of Conferences and Congresses provides an overview of the most important upcoming events in biology, in chronological order. Only larger conferences and congresses of several days' duration are considered. Please take advantage of the options on the right-hand side to refine the list of events.
The "14th European Fusarium Seminar" will take place from April 8-11, 2018 in Tulln, Austria. It will be jointly organized by the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU) and the Austrian Association of Molecular Life Sciences and Biotechnology, in cooperation with the International Society of Mycotoxicology. The EFS14 will be an excellent opportunity to present and discuss the progress made in all fields related to Fusarium research, ranging from medical research to plant pathology and from mycotoxin research to mitigation strategies. Topics like molecular taxonomy and detection of plant and animal pathogens, climate change or crop related changes in the Fusarium species and chemotype spectrum will be covered. "Host resistance genomics, genetics and plant breeding" will deal with studies about host resistance mechanisms (QTL and association mapping, transcriptomics, etc.), while work with a focus on the chemistry of host-pathogen interaction will be covered in the session "Fusarium secondary metabolites and metabolomics of Fusarium-host plant interactions". The session "Fusarium mycotoxins: toxicology, metabolism and remediation" will present new insights into classical Fusarium mycotoxins and toxin metabolism, but also emerging compounds and interactions of Fusarium metabolites will be included. A strong focus will be on strategies to detoxify and utilize contaminated grain. Last but not least "Integrated Fusarium management" will address topics ranging from forecasting, epidemiology, agronomic practice to avoid Fusarium infection pre-and postharvest, to problems like emerging fungicide resistance. ...
