German Biophysical Society Meeting 2014

The scientific contributions of the SFB 1078 at the Annual Meeting of the German Biophysical Society 2014 comprised 22 posters and one talk given by Julian Kappler from project C1. Together they made a significant scientific impact at the meeting, which took place at the University of Lübeck from 14 to 17 September 2014.
