Integrating omic approaches to host-pathogen interactions

The principle theme of the EMBO workshop is to bring together researchers who use or plan to use high throughput technologies to study the interaction of infectious diseases with the host cell and organism and also of the pathogen itself. This is with a view to explore how these technologies can be exploited and combined and what new developments are required to maximize the potential of these approaches.
