The Australian Microbial Ecology (AusME2017) meeting focuses on cellular and acellular microbes in the environment – their identity, abundance, function, and ecosystem impact. AusME2017 is a single stream, 2.5 day conference with half days devoted to 4 broad microbiome systems (aquatic, terrestrial, symbiotic and engineered environments) and a fifth microbial ecology toolbox session.
Each conference day will start with a presentation delivered by a Plenary Speaker. Each half day session (on the broad microbiome systems and the toolboxes) will be introduced by an Invited Speaker and followed by selected proffered oral presentations, to be delivered by early-mid career scientists. Plenary and Invited Speakers are exciting presenters and world-leaders in their fields.
Latest developments and applications of molecular “omics”, single-cell technologies, computational analyses, and more will be presented on microbes and their complex consortia in earth, aquatic, atmospheric and symbiotic settings.
