The 4th National Conference of Young Biotechnologists „FIBOK 2020” organised by the HUNGARIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES and the UNIVERSITY OF DEBRECEN was held online in November, 2020 and it focused on the following areas: PLANT BIOTECHNOLOGY, MEDICAL BIOTECHNOLOGY, MICROBIAL AND BIOMASS BIOTECHNOLOGY, ANIMAL BIOTECHNOLOGY.
The aim of the conference was to provide a forum for young scientists in Hungary involved in biotechnological research and to introduce the results of their research via oral and poster presentations and to support the collaboration between them.
Our research group was represented by two PhD students, Zsófia Berkl and Imre Németh, who presented their work in the MICROBIAL AND BIOMASS BIOTECHNOLOGY section on the 19th of November, 2020.
Zsófia Berkl introduced her work in an oral presentation on the cyclodextrin-mediated quorum quenching in the Aliivibrio fischeri model system. The abstract can be reached on page 63 of the Conference Abstract Book.
Imre Németh introduced the results of his work in a poster presentation on the effects of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide nanoparticles on Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Serratia marcescens biofilm formation. The abstract can be reached on page 81 of the Conference Abstract Book.
