Theme

In recent years, our understanding of how microbial communities develop and function has been revolutionized by advances in both DNA sequencing and microscopy. Mathematical tools provide a powerful tool for making sense of such data. This workshop will bring together leaders in the field, both from the experimental and theoretical sides, to highlight the current state of our understanding of microbial community structure, function and dynamics, and to discuss to productive future directions. The workshop will focus on ecology, evolution and dynamics. 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. It will be preceded by a training event, aimed at early career researchers but all are welcome also to attend.

Speakers

Invited speakers will be announced shortly.
