Conference: Microbiomes from Different Habitats - Soil, Water and Gut

Event Details

A two-day symposium takes place October 16-17 at Lincoln's downtown Embassy Suites Hotel. The event theme is “Microbiomes from Different Habitats: Soil, Water and Gut,” with speakers from academic research, media and private industry—including startup and multinational companies.

This conference is part of the Nebraska Research & Innovation Conference (NRIC) annual series, conducted by Nebraska EPSCoR and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). In 2016 a five-year NSF project established Nebraska's Center for Root & Rhizobiome Innovation (CRRI): a collaboration researching crop productivity focused on plants’ root microbiome. CRRI scientists--from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Nebraska at Kearney, University of Nebraska Medical Center and Doane University--aim to grow scientific knowledge that will better feed the growing population.

Mark your calendars and save the date! Attendees may also present a relevant poster in the event’s poster session on the afternoon of October 16.
