ESF-EMBO Symposium

Molecular Bioenergetics Of Cyanobacteria: Shaping The Environment

15-20 April 2013

Polonia Castle in Pultusk, Poland

Chaired by: Prof. Elke Dittmann, University of Potsdam

Co-chaired by: Prof. Conrad Mullineaux, Queen Mary, University of London, and Jens Appel, University of Kiel


Cyanobacteria are a highly intriguing and versatile group of bacteria of enormous biological and societal importance. As inventors of oxygenic photosynthesis and ancestors of chloroplasts they have occupied a key position in the evolution of the atmosphere and transformed biology and geochemistry on earth. Without doubt, research on cyanobacteria is crucial for the understanding of Earth’s early environmental history. The conference on “Bioenergetics of cyanobacteria” will highlight evolutionary aspects as the retrospective can give impulses for the present research on oxygenic phototrophs, in particular in times of a rapidly changing environment.
