Postdoc position in plant virus diagnostics and population genetics using NGS technologies – Belgium

The recent developments of high-throughput sequencing (NGS) technologies and bioinformatics have drastically changed the research on viral pathogens, including the ability to decipher the population genetics of any species. In addition, there are now raising a growing interest by scientist, regulatory agencies and diagnostic laboratories for their application in virus diagnostics.

The postdoc position is integrated within ongoing collaborations with European, African and South American teams. The Laboratory of Plant Pathology from Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech (Liège University, Belgium) is currently leading the COST Action FA1407 (www.cost-divas.eu), including more than 125 scientists and focused on the development of NGS technologies for the study and the diagnostic of plant viruses. The laboratory is also the virus diagnostic laboratory for the largest germplasm collection of banana held by Bioversity International (www.bioversityinternational.org).

New tool to distinguish between viral, bacterial infections

Antibiotics are lifesaving drugs, but overuse is leading to antibiotic resistance, one of the world's most pressing health threats. Scientists identified 11 genetic markers in blood that accurately distinguished between viral and bacterial infections 80 to 90 percent of the time. The finding is important because physicians don't have a good way to confirm bacterial infections like pneumonia and more-often-than-not default to an antibiotic.

Power of Microbes in Industry and Environment 2016

Date: September 28 to October 1 2016

Venue: Krk, Croatia

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the symposium “Power of Microbes in Industry and Environment 2016”, which will be held in Krk (island Krk), Croatia from September 28 to October 1 2016.

The experience of the past meetings motivated our efforts to continue with this series with a clear tendency to include new societies and strengthen the scientific connections among research groups of neighbouring countries.
