Dear colleagues

It is our great pleasure to announce and invite you to the 27th International Conference on Yeast Genetics and Molecular Biology (ICYGMB) to be held in Levico Terme, Trentino, Italy.

The meeting venue was recently moved to Italy due to the political situation in Ukraine. The conference is now being co-organized by the Italian and the Ukrainian scientific committees under the auspices of the international committee (FinPol), and is supported by a number of national and international scientific communities, including FEMS and EMBO.

Our goal is to bring together investigators from around the world to present and discuss research focused on yeasts as models for an in-depth understanding of biological processes and as biotechnological organisms.

Browse our web site to find out about the excellent standard of the science upon which the program has been built and the beautiful scenery that characterizes this wonderful part of Italy. Of course, also excellent food awaits you!

The Local Organising committee, in collaboration with the local tourism board and Levico’s business operators, is working in order to prepare a large social agenda outside the scientific session.

You could have the opportunity to discover the surroundings of Levico by water (pad), by foot (nordic walking) or by bycicle (with guided tours and special discounts on renting). We are applying to be active partners of the European Week of Sport.

At the aperitif time for discovering the healthy water of Levico, livemusic, taste of craft beers, visit of wineries or… why not? A boat-tour in the lake with a glass of sparkling wine.

When the night has come you could discover the massif Forte delle Benne, built at the time of the World War I, or enjoy a shopping night.

If you wish to escape a big longer you could visit MUSE in Trento, Open Air Art Museum in Valle di Sella or in Valle dei Mocheni.
