Biosensors 2010

Biosensors 2010 is a three-day event consisting of daily plenary presentations followed by parallel sessions. In addition to invited lectures, selected oral contributions will be included as extended plenary presentations. Parallel sessions comprising a rigorously refereed selection of submitted papers describing original work will be structured as symposia covering the following topics:

Nanobiosensors, nanomaterials & nanoanalytical systems
DNA chips & nucleic acid sensors
Enzyme-based biosensors
Organism- and whole cell-based biosensors
Biofuel and biological fuel cells
Bioelectronics & bionics
Electronic nose technology
Natural & synthetic receptors
Signal transduction technology
Microfluidics & systems integration
Proteomics and single-cell analysis
Commercial developments, manufacturing and markets
Contributions from commercial organisations are encouraged including detailed descriptions of development programmes and assessments of commercial opportunities.

A Short Course on Nanobiosensors at Glasgow University and a complimentary Tutorial (How to Write a Scientific Paper) will precede the Congress and the Congress will be followed by an Advanced Workshop on Theranostics at the University of Edinburgh Medical School.
