The conference will be held in the Institute of Functional Biology and Genomics (IBFG), Salamanca (Spain). http://ibfg.es/en/
The IBFG is a joint research center between the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) and the University of Salamanca (USAL). The IBFG’s main research interest is to understand the molecular mechanisms that regulate cell growth and division, cell morphogenesis, and the replication, stability and expression of the genome using the most advanced methods available. Several model organisms are used in the studies (bacteria, yeast, filamentous fungi, C. elegans, mice…).
The IBFG has 26 laboratories and a network of core facilities, including administration, a central stock and ordering room, areas for reagents and medium preparation, tissue culture, informatics, radiation safety, and general equipment and infrastructure. About 140 people work at the IBFG, including CSIC researchers, University professors, postdocs, PhD students, undergraduate students, technicians and other professionals running the administration and the maintenance workshop. There are 22 research groups, in three Research Units:
- I. Morphogenesis and Cell Polarity
- II. Genome Dynamics and Epigenetics
- III. Gene Regulation and Cell Differentiation
