Molecular Life of Diatoms 2015

  • We recommend that you book your hotels soon, Seattle is busy during the summer!
  • Information on local restaurants can be found here


Rapid progress in genomics and molecular genetics in selected model diatoms, together with the novel resources derived from modern oceanography and materials science are providing new opportunities to understand diatom biology and ecology, and to exploit them for biofuels and nanotechnology. This conference will be a platform to share the most recent research, establish new collaborations, and open up novel directions to fully harness the enormous potential of these fascinating organisms


If you have any questions about the conference, please email Rita Peterson with "Diatom 2015" in the subject line.
