Theoretical and computational techniques to model microbial communities are essential tools for making sense of the massive amounts of new data emerging from DNA sequencing. This 2-day workshop will feature tutorial-style lectures on a number of themes that are emerging in this field, ranging from understanding and interpreting microbial evolution experiments, through individual-based modelling, to analysis of sequence data. The meeting is open to all, but aimed at early career researchers, whom will be given the opportunity to present their work in short talks and posters. The workshop will take place at the Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge, UK, as part of a longer-term research programme on the study of function and structure of microbial communities.
