1st International Electronic Conference on Toxins (IECT2021). This meeting will be hosted online by https://sciforum.net/conference/IECT2021 from 16 to 31 January, 2021.
For millennia, toxins have played an integral role in many aspects of human endeavors by impacting health and agriculture. In addition to detrimental roles, they have been incredibly useful in expanding our understanding of biology and they continue to serve as tools for drug leads and therapeutic interventions. The mission of this conference is to provide a platform for scientists working on toxins from all organisms to present the latest concepts under research on these toxins and for all to compare and contrast the actions of toxins. The potential uses of toxins for the benefit of science as well as for humankind will be key concepts up for discussion.
Topics are organized into six sessions:
- Novel plant, animal, insect and microbial toxins
- Mechanism of action and/or pathophysiology of toxins
- Use of toxins as tools for research, drug discovery, and therapeutics
- Impact of toxins on public health
- Impact of toxins on agriculture
- Evolution of toxins
The meeting will be organized so that scientists can share their most recent findings with colleagues worldwide in question and answer sessions as well as in discussion groups that will occur online. We hope this will be an engaging format.
Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the conference committee and, if accepted, authors will be invited to submit an extended abstract for the conference proceedings along with a PowerPoint presentation of their work. The 1st International Electronic Conference on Toxins is sponsored by MDPI and the scientific journal Toxins (ISSN 2072-6651; Impact Factor: 3.531). The conference proceedings papers and presentations will be available on https://sciforum.net/conference/IECT2021 for discussion during 16 January 2021-31 January 2021 and will be published in journal Toxins./
