Bridging Theory and Experiment in Microbial Communities
December 12-14, 2018
Program Organizers: Mohamed Donia, Amir Erez, Ned Wingreen
Microbial communities have been receiving much attention lately, due to their essential role in maintaining the health of organisms and underpinning ecosystems. Ranging from symbionts in sponges, through fly and human microbiota, all the way to the foundations of the forest and marine food-chains, microbial communities at all scales provide key services and shape the environment. As such, their study combines multiple disciplines: not only across the biomedical and physical sciences, but also across theoretical, experimental, and computational approaches. Yet efforts to bridge these divides, especially between the experimental and the theoretical, are still in their infancy.
This PCTS workshop focuses on diverse aspects of microbial community science, with special emphasis on getting theorists and experimentalists together to discuss concrete problems, providing opportunities to foster new ideas and fruitful collaborations.
