In the last years, more and more data is being gathered on Planctomycetes-Verrucomicrobia-Chlamydiae (PVC) superphylum organisms, which stimulates our curiosity on these incredible bacteria. New organisms have been discovered, genomes disclosed and physiology, ecology and evolution unveiled. What did we learn? What is new? Where and how deep will we go to fully understand PVCs in the years to come?
The scope of the symposium is to facilitate discussion among researchers who recently advanced the field by investigating particular features in PVC-bacteria.
