American Society for Microbiology to host 113th General Meeting in Denver
Date:3/19/2013

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) will hold its 113th General Meeting, May 18-21, 2013 in Denver, Colorado. The meeting will feature approximately 3,000 individual scientific presentations spanning the breadth of microbiology and has an expected attendance of 8,000.

Microbiologists study living organisms and infectious agents, and their work is critical to human and animal health, agriculture, the environment and biotechnology. Many accomplishments in the microbiological sciences have significantly affected our lives, such as the development of treatments for infectious diseases, the prevention of food spoilage, the use of microorganisms to clean up pollutants and basic knowledge of the nature of all living things.

Among the topics to be presented are:

  • The role of microbes in human evolution and vice-versa
  • The microbiology of oceans and human health
  • Digital microbiology and the automation of laboratory diagnosis
  • How metabolism steers infection
  • The role of microbes in environmental sustainability
  • New frontiers in synthetic biology
  • How knowledge from the human microbiome project will change how we diagnose disease

A continuing trend at this year's meeting is how new technologies are not only changing how scientists do microbiology, but also how researchers view the role of microbiology and how microorganisms are shaping our world in ways we never imagined possible a few years ago.
