Fermentation and Cell Culture - Evolution, adaptation, and selection in fermentation

Wednesday, August 15, 2012: 8:00 AM-11:30 AM
Jefferson East, Concourse Level (Washington Hilton)
Helia Radianingtyas
Evolution, adaptation and selection in fermentation This session will focus on the advances in microbial dynamic under specific environment, as well as the impact of selective pressures and changes on population selection. Furthermore, the implication of this prolonged treatment at genome level will also be discussed.
