One of the tasks of RESTORESEAS is to study the pathogenic role of oomycetes in different marine forest ecosystems, since pathogens can heavily impact the condition and survival of their hosts. But pathogens and parasites are abundant in the natural world across different ecosystems, and so in the 21st Oomycete Molecular Genetics Network Meeting, we hope to bring together people to discuss their ecology, biology and role in different ecological contexts.
The meeting will take place in the Mendel University in Brno, Czech Republic, 22-25th August 2022, hosted by the Phytophthora Research Centre.

We walk in the footsteps of Gregor Joann Mendel… and this year we pay him a tribute on his 200th birthday.
After a 2-years gap due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the OMNG Annual Meeting in Brno is attracting considerable interest: up to now, we have 84 registered participants from 15 countries. With precautions, we are all trying to learn how to deal with a new reality as we return to in-person meetings. The organisers hope that OMGN2022 will continue to be a place of communication and collaboration among the Oomycete scientific community and a chance to strengthen the exchange of ideas, paving the way for multinational cooperation. May the participants find in Brno the perfect atmosphere for that to happen!
Plant & animal pathogens, mycoparasites, algae parasites… all are welcome to OMGN2022. Join in to discuss great science and Oomycete brainstorming!!
- Diversity, Taxonomy and Population studies
- Effectors, Virulence and Pathogenicity
- Cell Biology, Signalling and Metabolism
- Ecology, Metagenomics and Microbial Interactions
- Host-pathogen interaction and resistance mechanisms
