The International Symposium on Environmental Factors, Cellular Stress and Evolution

The International Symposium on Environmental Factors, Cellular Stress and Evolution was held at Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India, October 13-15, 2006. The organizers were Subhash C. Lakhotia, Martin E. Feder and Sree K. Apte. Stress affects every biological system and environmental stress factors have been key players in shaping organic evolution. Therefore, there is a strong need for understanding the roles of stress proteins and stress responses from an integrative biological perspective. This symposium provided a common platform for interactions between those studying stress responses and stress proteins from different viewpoints like evolutionary biology, ecology, molecular biology or biotechnology.
