Protein phosphatases, from molecules to networks

EMBO Rep. 2011 Dec 1;12(12):1211-3. doi: 10.1038/embor.2011.225.


The third EMBO-sponsored 'Europhosphatases' meeting brought together 180 participants with a wide range of backgrounds and research interests to discuss the current status of research on phosphatases. It became clear at this meeting that the field is very active, and just as diverse as its members. This report highlights some of the transformative research presented at the meeting.
