Microbial Language: Microbes, Molecules and Metabolites (GRS)
Microbial Language: Microbes, Molecules and Metabolites Gordon Research Seminar will highlight the mechanisms and applications of microbial languages. In the natural environment, built environment, or in human and non-human hosts, microbes commonly use small molecules or metabolites to coordinate behaviors and metabolisms, assemble into simple or complex communities, or mount a defense from intruders. Discussions of novel insights into microbial communication and its wide-ranging applications from pure culture studies to health and human services or environmental functioning and response will be encouraged.
Financial assistance is available for qualified applicants through the GRC Carl Storm Underrepresented Minority Fellowship Program.
