“Understanding the Beneficial Role of the Microbiota in Animals and Plants”
9 Oct 2017 - 11 Oct 2017
Plant roots and mucosal surfaces of animals are colonized by complex and diverse microbial communities that include bacteria, archaea, fungi, viruses and protozooa (microbiota).
In both animals and plants, the microbiota contribute to many beneficial processes in the host including nutrition acquisition, optimal cellular development and defense against pathogenic microbes.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together the world’s leading scientists working on the microbiome in animals and plants to present and discuss cutting edge research in their fields.
The conferences will be held over a three day period at UNIA’s head office, Campus Antonio Machado, in Baeza (Andalusia, Spain) and the working language will be English.
