PUDUCHERRY: Perspective on trends in anti-microbial resistance, the implications of microbial evolution for diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases, the value of good infection control practices and use of advanced molecular technology and bioinformatics as constructive epidemiological tools are being discussed at MICROCON 2015, which  began at the Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER) here on Wednesday. MICROCON 2015 is the 39th National Conference of the Indian Association of Medical Microbiologists.

The conference, which is themed ‘Man vs Microbe: The Race for Supremacy’, will conclude on November 29.

JIPMER Director Dr Subhash Chandra Parija, the organising chairman of the conference, said that about 1,300 delegates from India and abroad are participating in the conference. It will be a good opportunity for microbiologists from all over the country to interact and share their academic and research experience with their fellow microbiologists.

The conference will provide a glimpse of the current research activities in the field of microbiology and improve the understanding of various infectious diseases, which in turn will contribute in early diagnosis and proper management of the patients.

Pre-conference workshops are being organised, aimed at imparting hands-on training on various diagnostic techniques and interpretative skills to young microbiologists.

In all, 11 pre-conference workshops and three Continuing Medical Education programmes will be organised. Some of them were held on Wednesday.

During the conference, 197 oral and 486 poster presentations will be made by the delegates from various parts of the country.

About six to eight parallel scientific sessions will be organised from November 27 to 29.
