Attracting about 100 participants, the fifth edition of our French Phages.fr annual conference was once more a success. This year's conference took place at the Institute for Structural Biology on the European Electron and Photon Campus in Grenoble, October 8 and 9, 2019. Similar to previous years, our meeting gathered scientists mainly working in France, from academic labs and hospitals as well as from industry. We also had the pleasure of welcoming attendees from different European countries and even beyond. The conference was divided into four sessions: Ecology and Evolution, Phage Therapy and Biotechnology, Structure and Assembly and Phage-Host Interaction, each opened by a keynote lecture. The talks, selected from abstracts, gave the opportunity for young scientists (especially students and post-docs) to present their project and results in a friendly atmosphere. Poster sessions also favoured interactions and discussions between young researchers and more senior scientists. Here, we provide a summary of the topics developed during the conference.

  • Bacteriophages/physiology/ultrastructure
  • Biological Evolution
  • Biotechnology
  • Host-Pathogen Interactions
  • Humans
  • Phage Therapy
