I know that Heidi has already posted about this conference in the "On the Road" section.
However, I just wanted to say that today is the start of the Microbiology Society conference in Liverpool which looks like it's going to be a great event. Unfortunately, like many others, I cannot attend.
However, you can follow along with the conference on Twitter without even making an account via this link:
If you do have a Twitter account, you can follow the hashtag #Microbio16 (I see that the Nature Microbiology account is already Tweeting away!)
It looks like it's going to be very active and if you've never used Twitter before, I think you'll be surprised how much information you can get from the online discussions.
Let me know what you think in the comments to this post.
