About this event
Plenary lectures and symposia will also deal with transversal topics, such as population genetics, evolution, speciation, taxonomy, bioinformatics, modelling, whole genome sequencing analysis and -omics analyses.
During the conference, awards will be attributed to the best communication, the best communication by a student, the best communication by a scientist from the Southern World and the best poster communication. Each prizewinner will be offered a free 2-year subscription to Infection, Genetics and Evolution.
Selected papers communicated in the framework of MEEGID XV will be published after peer-review in a special issue of Infection, Genetics and Evolution.
Attending this conference will enable you to access unique, high-quality content, learn about the latest developments in infectious diseases and epidemiology research from experts in the field, present your latest research to your peers and network with an interdisciplinary group from around the world – including academics and researchers, as well as health and industry professionals.
Oral and paper abstracts are now invited on the following topics. They should be submitted using the online abstract submission system. Abstract Submission Deadline: 4 June 2021
Studies dealing with viruses, bacteria, parasitic protozoa, fungi and helminths of medical, veterinary or agronomical relevance, related to the following general themes:
Co-evolution between hosts, pathogens and vectors
Genetics and Genomics
Host genetic susceptibility to transmissible diseases (humans and animals), pathogenesis
Molecular diagnosis, epidemiology and taxonomy
Population genetics, population genomics, phylogenetics, phylogenomics, phylogeography
In the framework of these general themes, specialized topics will concern COVID-19, HIV, ZIKA, Ebola, tuberculosis and other bacterial diseases, helminth infections, malaria, Chagas disease, Leishmania, vector biology.
