Microbe 2016 by the American Society of Microbiology (ASM) begins this year at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center with a keynote address featuring Bill Gates, Co-chairman of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, who discusses the importance of microbial sciences to improving global healthcare. The program includes seven tracks, including a new track “Profession of Microbiology” and has something for everyone, from Synthetic Biology to Clinical Microbiology, Microbiomes to Agribiomes and MDR to CRISPR.
Please come and visit the Thermo Fisher Scientific display at booth #810. Join us for our workshop on Saturday, June 18th from 1:45 – 2:30 pm to learn how researchers collaborate with and use Thermo Fisher Scientific’s genetic analysis technologies to enable the latest research into pathogen detection.
Time: Saturday, June 18th from 1.45 – 2.30 pm
