European Nitrogen Fixation Conference 2012

May 12th, 2012

The 10th European Nitrogen Fixation Conference (ENFC) will be held at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU), Biozentrum in Martinsried near Munich, Germany, on 2-5 September 2012. This biennial congress series is always a big event for scientists working on nitrogen-fixing bacteria and the rhizobium-legume symbiosis. In addition, there will be sessions on the biochemistry of nitrogenase.

The 10th ENFC will start with a satellite meeting on “Genomics of Nitrogen Fixing Bacteria”. In addition, two satellite events will be organized for 6th/7th September: the “13th Symposium on Biological Nitrogen Fixation with Non-Legumes, focussing on the interaction of diazotrophic bacteria with practically most relevant Gramineae and the 1st “Molecular Mycorrhiza Meeting” (MMM).

Registration has recently opened on the conference web site: http://www.enfc2012.de , where you will also find an outline of the session topics and a list of confirmed speakers.
