Ecology of Soil Microorganisms 2022
The 4th Ecology of Soil Microorganisms meeting with occur on 19 – 23 June 2022 in Prague, Czech Republic. The theme will be “Microbes as Important Drivers of Soil Processes”.
The conference is planned as an interdisciplinary platform that should offer as much interaction among various subjects within microbial ecology as possible. This includes questions addressing individual microbes, microbial communities as well as their interactions with the environment and other soil biota. We aim to link the current molecular “omics” methods such as metagenomics, metatranscriptomics and metaproteomics with approaches based on soil chemical and biochemical analyses, the exploration of soil fauna and plant ecology. The other important goal of the conference is a wide scope covering the ecology of all microbes: bacteria and fungi as well as archaea and protozoa. Our aim is to bring experts from all these disciplines to a meeting where all can benefit from interactions and to promote in this way the research in the field of soil ecology.
Conference participants are welcome to submit full papers based on their results presented at the conference to the Special Thematic Issue of FEMS Microbiology Ecology, Ecology of Soil Microorganisms“. Deadline for submissions is December 15, 2022.
