Speaker: Buddhie Nanayakkara, Gordon Group, E&E, RSB
E. coli is widely used as an indicator of faecal contamination of water. The assumptions that it is unable to multiply outside a host and is not present in the absence of faecal contamination are among the criteria used for its selection as an indicator.

Speaker: Professor Vincent Bulone, Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls, University of Adelaide
Eukaryotic cell walls are complex matrices that largely consist of polysaccharides. Despite strong differences in molecular composition and architecture across taxonomic groups, cell walls exert similar functions regardless of the type of organism considered.
