Welcome to the internet platform of BACELL, the umbrella organization for the European scientific community investigating the biology and application of Bacillus species and related Gram-positive bacteria.

BACELL is supported by the Bacillus Industrial Platform (BACIP), an association of industries promoting and supporting research and development of Bacillus and other Gram-positive microorganisms.

The next international conference on Gram-positive bacteria will take place in Prague from June 14–17, 2022.
