FEMS serves the European microbiological community by presenting a comprehensive list of microbiology events. The calendar focuses on international events throughout Europe and also includes the FEMS Meetings.
The calendar is updated on a regular basis. Please feel free to inform us about relevant meetings we missed and post your event on our website.

In the history of life, the most transformative symbiosis was the ‘primary endosymbiosis,’ wherein a cyanobacterium was engulfed by a eukaryote and became genetically integrated as a heritable photosynthetic organelle, or plastid. Since we cannot travel back in time to witness these evolutionary junctures, Gregory S Gavelis and Gillian H Gile draw on examples of unicellular eukaryotes (protists) spanning diverse modes of photosymbiosis. They also review experimental approaches that could be used to recreate aspects of early primary endosymbiosis on a human timescale.
