MicroNZ 2003 Conference over

On Thursday MicroNZ 2003 finished.
It was a good conference, I personally learnt that quorum sensing is much more complicated than I had first thought - the host can intercept bacterial signals, and bacteria can interpret host cytokine signaling. I also learnt about integrons - 59bp transposable genetic elements.
