European Science Foundation
Scientific Programme on Cyanobacterial Nitrogen Fixation (CYANOFIX)

http://www.area.fi.cnr.it/cyanofix

Workshop on
Natural communities of nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria: new techniques for
field studies

Date
6 - 11 November 2001

Location
University Residential Centre (http://www.spbo.unibo.it/bertinoro/),
Bertinoro, Forlì, Italy

Programme
The workshop aims to make European scientists/laboratories actively working
on nitrogen fixing cyanobacteria aware of the possibilities offered by a
wide range of recent developments and new techniques for the study of
natural communities of cyanobacteria in the field. Leading experts,
including some who are not cyanobacteriologists, have been asked to present
details of technical aspects of their work and to discuss their potential
use for the study of nitrogen fixing cyanobacterial populations. Through
lectures, short contributions and plenty of time reserved for free-ranging
discussion, the meeting will provide European cyanobacteriologists with a
deeper awareness of the pros and cons of new approaches and an opportunity
to establish or strengthen collaborative links among laboratories.
The structure of the workshop will include main lectures, short
contributions from participants (approx. 15 min) and plenary discussions at
the end of each session or sub session. The discussions will be moderated by
discussion leaders and rapporteurs will produce complete reports which will
be edited for publication as a workshop proceedings booklet, which will be
distributed to all participants in electronic format and/or made available
on the CYANOFIX programme web site.

List of topics
Although the full list of topics to be covered during the workshop has still
to be determined, the following will be definitely included. This list is
regularly updated and will be complete in a few days.

Real time PCR
Quantitative PCR
DGGE, TGGE, T-RFLP, SSCP
Gene exchange
In situ hybridisation
Flow cytometry
DNA microarrays
Immunological in situ detection
Image analysis

Session B: Genomics and post-genomics
Genomics: In silico analysis of genome data
Transcriptomics, past, present and future
Metanomics: Metabolic profiling

Session C: Metabolic activities
Old and new methods to assess N2 fixation
Fluorescence kinetics
Electrochemical and optical microsensors

Session D: Environmental sensing
Biosensors

Session A: Anneliese Ernst, Thomas Börner, Gerard Muyzer, Annick Wilmotte,
Paul Hayes, Linda Medlin, Angelika Lehner, Gianluca De Bellis, Birgitta
Bergman, Jonas S. Almeida.
Session B: Wolfgang Hess, Ian Wilson, Hans von Döhren.
Session C: Lucas Stal, Mirja Salkinoja-Salonen, Michael Kühl.
Session D: Giuseppe Palleschi, Patrizia Albertano, Luca Pantani, Luisa
Tomaselli, Jacco C. Kromkamp

Organisation and Participation
The organising committee wishes to encourage the participation of
representatives from as many labs/groups as possible. Multiple participants
from the same lab/group will be allowed only when free places still
available. Preference will be given to postdoctoral researchers from groups
actively involved in research on cyanobacteria. Numbers are limited.
Successful applicants will be requested to provide a deposit of EURO 150;
all other costs will be funded by the ESF. Preference will be given to
applicants from European countries participating in the ESF Programme on
Cyanobacterial Nitrogen Fixation (CYANOFIX). More details are available in
the guidelines for applicants for CYANOFIX activities, on the programme web
site. The electronic application form is available on the programme web
site: http://www.area.fi.cnr.it/cyanofix. The deadline for submission of
applications is 15 August 2001.

The Venue
The Workshop will take place in Bertinoro, which is situated in the
attractive hilly countryside of northern Italy. The nearest major
international airport is in Bologna, which is served by direct flights from
many European cities. Bertinoro is 30 min away from Ravenna, the capital of
the Western Roman Empire of the early Byzantine period, with its fascinating
monuments and churches. An excursion to Ravenna will be organised to allow
the LIDAR laser technique for remote sensing of microbial patinas on ancient
stone monuments to be demonstrated. Further information on the region is
available on http://www.regione.emilia-romagna.it/bodyandsoul/

Application
To pre-register for workshop attendance, please fill and submit the
electronic application form on the CYANOFIX programme web page
(http://www.area.fi.cnr.it/cyanofix). Although the Organising Committee
hopes to offer a place at the Workshop to everyone expressing an interest,
because the number of participants is strictly limited this may not be
possible. The Organising Committee will make a final decision about the list
of participants shortly after the expiration of the application deadline (15
August 2001). All pre-applicants will be notified of the outcome by 7
September 2001.

Abstract submission
Accepted participants and invited speakers will be required to submit a
200-word abstract of their presentation using an electronic submission form.

For more information, contact any member of the Organising Committee.
