Primer Workshop Argentino de Bacteriófagos

1st Argentinean Workshop
Bacteriophages and biotechnological applications

This event will discuss the role of bacteriophages in the industry and diseases. The aim of this Workshop is to increase the interaction between Argentinean groups working on bacteriophages and establish new scientific collaborations. This meeting is supported by the National University of Quilmes and has been organized on the ocassion of Dr. Mzia Kutateladze visit. The possibility of collaboration with the Eliava Institute is the major interest for all participating researchers in this event. We are honored for the presence of Dr. Kutateladze.
