Call for Papers

The ICNF 2018 : 20th International Conference on Nitrogen Fixation is the premier interdisciplinary platform for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of Nitrogen Fixation. The conference will bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and scholars in the domain of interest from around the world. Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:
  • Nitrogen Fixation
  • Chemistry, Biochemistry and Technology of Nitrogenase
  • Nitrogen Fixation and Regulation (including Cyanobacteria)
  • Nitrogen cycles (Denitrification, Unculturable diazotrophs, Animal-associated)
  • Bioresources and Genomics
  • Plant-Microbe Signaling
  • Legume-Rhizobium Symbiosis
  • Non-Legume Associations (Frankia, Endophytes)
  • Plant Nutrition Associated with Microbial Symbiosis (N, P, Mo, Mycorrhiza)
  • Ecology and Applications
  • Evolution and biodiversity of diazotrophs and their hosts
  • Signal exchange in host-diazotroph interactions
  • Regulation of nitrogen fixation
  • Genetic regulatory networks
  • Genomics of the symbiotic partners
  • Cell biology of infection and invasion
  • Nitrogen-fixing associations with plants
  • Physiology and genetics of free-living and symbiotic diazotrophs
  • Marine nitrogen fixation and global aspects of BNF
  • Structure, function and biosynthesis of nitrogenase
  • Genomics of nitrogen fixing microbes
  • Genome-enabled science: transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics
  • Molecular genetic aspects of mycorrhiza
