On December 15, 2018, the 11th Beijing Yeast Club Seminar was held at the Yingdong Academic Hall of Beijing Normal University. The conference was hosted by the Microbial Genetics Committee of the Chinese Society of Genetics. It was organized by the Institute of Biochemistry and Biotechnology of the School of Life Sciences of Beijing Normal University. Professor Zhu Xudong and Dou Fei of the School of Life Sciences were the directors of the organizing committee. The conference invited outstanding yeast experts from Beijing to participate in academic reports and discussions. Nearly 210 experts and scholars from the more than 10 universities and research institutes such as the Institute of Microbiology, Institute of Zoology of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Peking University, University of Science and Technology and Beijing Normal University attended the seminar of this meeting.
The opening ceremony of the conference was presided over by Professor Zhu Xudong, the director of the Institute of Biochemistry and Biotechnology of the College of Life Sciences. Prof. Yan Anru, Dean of the School of Life Sciences, and Professor Lou Huiqiang of the China Agricultural University, respectively, delivered speeches on behalf of our school and the organizing committee. The conference focused on DNA replication mechanism, meiosis, nucleosome assembly, sexual reproduction, stress resistance, ubiquitin regulation and quantitative biology research, and conducted in-depth research and discussion at gene level, chromatin level, protein level and cell level using a variety of yeasts, including Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Schizosaccharomyces cerevisiae, Candida albicans and Cryptococcus neoformans.

A total of 15 reports were arranged, which fully demonstrated the new methods, new ideas, new achievements and new progress in yeast research in recent years. The conference speakers gave a brief and concise introduction to their laboratory work, reasonably explained the interesting scientific findings for more in-depth thinking, and stimulated heated discussion and interaction among the audience. The speaker's in-depth and shallow explanations and the listener's positive thinking and questioning have benefited both sides greatly. At the same time, the meeting arranged wall posters exchanges, deliberate discussions and in-depth exchanges
Professor Dou Fei presided over the closing ceremony and made a concluding speech. The conference promoted academic exchanges in the field of pattern fungi represented by Saccharomyces cerevisiae in Beijing and the whole country.
