July 6-7 2017
TRYP BY Wyndham, Mall of Asia . Manila-1Esplanade,MOA Complex, Pasay City Philippines
History has always seen microbes under a grim light – as agents of deathand disease. Yet what is interesting is that since time immemorial, humanity has also benefited from these so called “dangerous” microbes. Microbiology has been part of our lives despite having little or no knowledge of it.The Philippine Society for Microbiology, for its 46th Annual Convention and Scientific Meeting, celebrates the importance of microorganisms in many practical aspects of human culture. Microorganisms appear in published literature, film and the arts. Viruses are important pathogens, while bacterial fermentation is a source of many food products and chemicals. Microorganisms are important in sewage treatment, and some serve as model organisms in genetics. How many movies of diseases and mass infection have we seen in theaters? Microorganisms, small as they are, play many important roles in human society Download CHED Endoresement
