Workshop: The molecular biology of B.cereus, B. anthracis and B. thuringiens=
is.

There has to our knowledge never been a meeting focusing specifically on the
Bacillus cereus group of bacteria. We (The Scientific Organizing Comittee)
have
therefore agreed to arrange a meeting in May in Oslo to discuss THE MOLECULA=
R
BIOLOGY OF B. cereus, B. thuringiensis and B. anthracis

Venue: The Norwegian Medical Association Conference Centre SORIA MORIA, in t=
he
hills just outside Oslo.

Time: After lunch May 23 - 25 1997.

Scientific Organizing Committee:
Lars Andrup, Copenhagen, Denmark (Fax 45 39270107)
Anne-Brit Kolst=AF, Oslo, Norway (Fax 47 22694130)
Didier Lereclus, Paris, France (Fax 33 1 45688938)
Jacques Mahillon, Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium (Fax 32 10473109)
Michele Moch, Paris, France (Fax 33 1 45688954)

Topics to be discussed include: Gene transfer and genetic element stability
Virulence factors Toxins (including Cry toxins) and bacteriocins Genomics
(chromosomal and large plasmids) Environmental considerations

Since B.cereus, B.thuringiensis and B.anthracis are closely related, a commo=
n
discussion of these themes will be of interest to many of us. Speakers will =
be
mainly selected from the registered participants. In addition there will
be posters. We will invite you to join us in Oslo for this workshop.
