    The International symposium on Microcystis studies from Asia will be held in Wuhan city, China. The meeting will be hosted by Institute of Hydrobiology, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), on 5-7 April 2011. The main tasks of this symposium are to bring together scientists working on different aspects of Microcystis or Microcystis blooms (Cyanobacterial blooms), and to establish an important platform for discussion and exchange of ideas on Microcystis (or toxic cyanobacterial) studies among researchers in Asian countries. The meeting will be organized around keynote lectures, oral communications and poster presentations, followed by informal discussions. The meeting will be arranged for presenting your research aspects as followings:

    1)    Diversity, taxonomy and monitoring on Microcystis blooms (species)

    2)    Molecular biology, genetics and genomics of Microcystis

    3)    Physio-ecology of Microcystis and methods & technologies for controlling Microcystis blooms

    4)    Detection, toxicity and toxicology of Microcystins and related compounds.

    Right now we have following outstanding scientists to join the symposium as:
