More than 30 oral presentations and approximately 120 posters gave insight into new studies regarding detection, production and occurrence, impact on animal and human health, reduction and prevention, as well as toxicology. This conference was a great opportunity for young scientists, especially PhD students, to introduce aspects of their research.
Biomin was not only a main sponsor but also contributed to the extensive scientific program, with several posters and an oral presentation by Michaela Thamhesl. The latter dealt with the isolation of Rhodococcus erythropolis as well as the cloning of two enzymes, responsible for hydrolysis and deamination of ergopeptines.
The concluding conference dinner offered a pleasant atmosphere and a great opportunity for scientific and social exchange, as well as networking.
