Abstract

The meeting “Microbial Stress: from Molecules to Systems” – the third in this series – was held in Sitges (Spain) in November 2015. The meeting offered the opportunity for international scientists to share their viewpoints and recent outcomes concerning microbial stress responses. Particular attention was given to the characterisation of mechanisms triggered by stress, from detailed molecular biology through whole organism systems biology up to the level of populations. A deeper understanding of microbial responses to stress is indeed attainable only considering the phenomenon as a whole. Exhaustive knowledge of the various stress response systems, and of their interconnections, is important for different applications, from the prevention and counteraction of bacterial infectious diseases to the engineering of robust cell factories. The presentations covered all of these aspects, enabling an active interaction among participants. It also stimulated discussions and cross-fertilisation among disciplines, which was one of the aims of the meeting. Moreover, since many stress response mechanisms are broadly conserved, data obtained at the microbial scale may facilitate the comprehension of complex phenomena, such as aging, evolution of neurological diseases and cancer.
