Bioblast 2012

Conference on Mitochondrial Competence

Dear participants of Bioblast 2012, dear members of the OROBOROS MiPNet, dear Gentle Scientists:

You all - being able to participate in 2012 or expressing an interest in attending a future Bioblast Conference - contributed to make Bioblast 2012 a special event in the spirit of the 'Oroboros' - Cooperation and Feedback in Science.

Quality is our mission, science is our passion.

The O2k-Team wants to thank you for making possible a meeting that may have originated as a common dream and may continue as a common vision. Bioblast 2012 was a singular event. With your contributions to the Mitochondrial Physiology Network, Bioblast will re-emerge at another special occasion. We are looking forward to the next Bioblast on the horizon.

The O2k-Team
