Registration for the 9th International Mycological Congress, held 1-6 of August, is now open. This looks to be an exciting, dynamic, and broad conference on fungal biology covering a great breadth of topics. These include: intricate look at fungal cell biology using microscopy, genetic and molecular biology tools; Evolution of fungi through systematics and comparative biology and new aspects of taxonomy; genetics and genomics of fungi; Studies of plant and animal pathogens. The meeting is only held every 5 years so I hope you can advantage of it! This year it will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. The early registration is 5 February and you have until 9 April to submit abstracts.
Hope to see you there
