Microbiome Supergroup Banner

Tübingen Microbiome Supergroup

The microbiome super group is a biweekly seminar series where groups from the Max-Planck-Institute for Biology and the University of Tübingen get together to discuss host-microbe interactions, microbial ecology, and the computational and statistical methods used in these fields. The seminar aims to strengthen the links between the different groups in Tübingen, to foster collaboration, and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between researchers. In each session one or two PhD students, postdocs, group leaders or invited speakers present their work in an informal setting.
