6-9th September 2015
Jointly hosted by the British Mycological Society and the Society for General Microbiology
Recent work in fungal biology has highlighted the huge importance of invasive development in fungal lifestyles. Much of the current high–profile fungal research deals with the concept of invasion; from the mechanistic basis of fungal cell invasion, to the invasion of plant and animal tissues through to invasion of non–living matter and finally to invasion of new geographical or biological niches. The universally understood concept of invasion will form the central tenant of this meeting and enable debate and discussion on the complex issues of disease, geographical spread and ecology.
