Molecular Biology and Physiology

The Molecular Biology and Physiology (MBP) track covers a broad spectrum of microbiological phenomena. For scientists in the MBP track, the goal is to understand the basic mechanisms of microbial life at the molecular, cellular and multi-cellular level.

  • MBP01 - Gene Expression and Regulation.
  • MBP02 - Signal Transduction.
  • MBP03 - Stress Responses.
  • MBP04 - Growth, Morphogenesis and Development.
  • MBP05 - Genome Dynamics, including Replication, Repair and Recombination.
  • MBP06 - Metabolism Enzyme Mechanics and Physiology.
  • MBP07 - Biofilms, Motility and other Collective Behaviors.
  • MBP08 - Transport Systems.
  • MBP09 - Phage and Viruses.
  • MBP10 - New Microbiological Techniques.
