The population structure of Escherichia - POSTPONED

Scientific meeting

Location

Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ

Overview

This meeting is postponed. More details to follow.

Scientific meeting organised by Professor Mark Achtman FRS, Professor Kathryn Holt and Professor David Aanensen.

GrapeTree of 1610 Ebola genomes from the West African epidemic of 2013–2016 on a backdrop of an agar plate with bacterial colonies. Credits: GrapeTree from Fig. 3 in Zhou et al., Genome research 28, 1395-1404 (2018). Agar plate (sourced from Kiss Clipart).

Escherichia includes commensal and invasive E. coli, Shigella, and multiple discrete species. >100,000 Escherichia genomes have been assembled by EnteroBase and 9,500 genomes that represent the entire diversity have been identified, the so-called EcoRPlus collection. Experts on all aspects of Escherichia will convene here to discuss creating an integrated scientific community for annotating the basic population structure of this genus.
