The field of microbial sciences is evolving. More and more important discoveries are occurring at the intersections between disciplines. Trans-disciplinary collaboration has never been more important than it is now.

Integrating ASM's two premier events, General Meeting and ICAAC, the all-new ASM Microbe 2016 (June 16–20, 2016, Boston, MA) showcases the best microbial sciences in the world and provides a one-of-a-kind forum to explore the complete spectrum of microbiology from basic science to translation and application.

Abstract submission deadline was January 12, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. ET

Registration opens to everyone: January 7, 2016
