Topical Day | Ionising radiation: how do bacteria cope and what can we learn?

April 21, 2017   Mol (BELGIUM)

The following topics will be treated:

  • How bacteria avoid and/or overcome ionising-radiation damage;
  • Bioinformatic approaches to unravel genetic and regulatory networks;
  • Bacterial control of radionuclide-poluted sites;
  • Therapeutic uses of ionising radiation resistant bacteria or their products;
  • Radiation in geo- and astrobiology: microbial life at the edge;
  • The impact of radiotherapy on the human microbiome;
  • Microbial community analysis of radiation-intensive environments.
