Gutenberg Workshop: "The Rise and Fall of Mutualisms - Ecological and Evolutionary Dynamics of Host-Microbe Symbioses"

Achtung neuer Termin: der Workshop wurde auf 13.-15. Oktober 2021 verschoben!

Veranstaltungsort: Kloster Wasem, Ingelheim

Mutualisms are ubiquitous in nature and shape the ecology and evolution of all living organisms on the planet, from microbes to plants and animals. As such, mutually beneficial interactions are subject to intensive research efforts, and important facets from the molecular level to the processes governing the assembly of interacting communities are currently being elucidated.

The Gutenberg Workshop on The Rise and Fall of Mutualisms will bring together leading scientists in this field to discuss recent developments on the factors stabilizing cooperation in mutualisms, the molecular underpinnings of the partners’ interactions, the determinants of host colonization and microbial community assembly, and the impact of mutualistic associations on the ecology and evolution of the interacting partners.

This workshop will be held as a hybrid workshop format in the scenic Monastery Wasem in Ingelheim, providing a stimulating atmosphere for scientific talks and discussions. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing restrictions, there are limited spaces available on site as well as the possibility of a remote online participation.
