Torino hosts the Embo workshop 2010  

The Embo congress 'Genomic approaches to interactions between plant viruses, their hosts  and their vectors' organized by Ivv-Cnr will be held in Fenestrelle (Torino), Italy from 10 to 12 June 2010.

Plant viruses have been in the past and still are good models in general virology, including various defense systems (silencing, innate immunity) evolution, epidemiology.

The complete genome sequence of most plant viruses and of several hosts together with the availability of new high-throughput technologies for performing proteomics, functional genomics and genome-wide analyses have recently revolutioned the way of dissecting molecular interactions among plant viruses, their hosts and vectors.

For this reason, the output of the workshop will impact all areas of virology and also more generally plant pathology.

In particular, the molecular bases encompassing plant defences against virus and viroid infections, counter-defence strategies developed by these pathogens, their replication and trafficking mechanisms, the complex relationships among vectors, plants and viruses and their evolutionary implications will be the principal topics of the workshop. This is reflected in two sessions dedicated to plant response (a particularly rich subject in recent years), one dedicated to virus/vector interactions (an emerging area, with an increasing research effort worldwide), and three dedicated to virus replication and translation, virus movement and trafficking, virus recombination and evolution.
