    • !!! SIBBM 2020 · Frontiers in Molecular Biology · POSTPONED TO 7-9 JUNE 2021 !!!

      The Seminar Scientific Committee and the SIBBM Steering Committee met today, April 3rd, and took the difficult decision to postpone the Seminar in program in July 2020 to 7-9 June 2021, still in Padua and still on metabolism. The satellite meeting on phase separation will follow the same route. On July 2nd SIBBM will organize a streaming event open to all interested on the following subjects:

      • CRISPR-mediated molecular diagnosis and therapy of COVID-19
      • Bioinformatic analysis of viral genomes reconstructing SARS-CoV-2 evolution
      • Principles of recombinant viruses generation and analysis

    Share with us your COVID-19 activities!

    During these days, so different from the usual, we would like to encourage all members to share their news related to our daily life as researchers. SIBBM will host articles, contributions, studies, and research activities related to COVID-19 that can be of interest to the scientific community and lay people.

    You can send your content or posts to Contributions may also gain a space on the FISV homepage.

    Read testimonials of some researchers!
