A one day conference bringing together the latest techniques applied in microbiology today
Technologies used in biological research are always being further developed and refined, bringing both new tools for researchers to utilise and new applications for existing technologies. Microbiology in particular is reliant upon technological developments, from humble beginnings with the optical microscope and staining techniques to modern fluorescent, atomic force and electron microscopes and whole genome sequencing. Technological advancement has never been faster than it is currently; there are now more companies employing more staff and making use of more information than there have ever been previously. With the current speed of technological development, it can be difficult for already busy researchers to take the time to learn more about new technology.

This conference will provide a means for delegates to learn a little about how some of the newer technologies work, and how different approaches can be used in research. Even when people are aware of a technology, they may not realise that it can be applied to their own work - this conference seeks to address this and provide fresh ideas for researchers at all stages of their career. This will be of particular benefit to young researchers thinking about how they can lead their own research, and for those who have been in research for a longer time who have well-established laboratories and only make use of a few approaches.
