About the 3rd Plant Microbiome Symposium
The 3rd Plant Microbiome Symposium to be held in Dundee, from 10 - 12 June 2020. In analogy with the role played by the human microbiome in personalised medicine, the plant microbiome gained centre stage in the agro-biotech sector as an untapped resource for sustainable crop production. This international Symposium will welcome academics, professionals and stakeholders to discuss recent scientific achievements in the field and laid the foundations for future collaborative efforts. Presentations will encompass insights from cutting-edge discovery science, translational applications and national initiatives coordinating microbiome research. To continue the camaraderie enshrined in the first two editions of the Symposium, and foster more direct interactions among participants, we aim at gathering around 100 delegates from the UK and the rest of the world who are at the forefront of their disciplines. Alongside leading speakers, we will value and encourage the participation of students and early career researchers and professionals in the discussions to increase their skills and future employability in this thriving sector.
