Welcome to the Microverse I Symposium

It is a great pleasure to announce the Microverse I Symposium, which will be held on September 1-3, 2020 in Jena, Germany.
This symposium is jointly organized by the Cluster of Excellence Balance of the Microverse, the Collaborative Research Centres ChemBioSys and AquaDiva, as well as the consortium InfectControl 2020. In Jena, we combine our expertise in life, optical, material and computational sciences to investigate the dynamic balance of microbial communities in various habitats, from the molecular to the ecosystem level. We study the molecules mediating the complex interactions amongst microorganisms and with their hosts and the environment.

We invite you to join our Microverse I Symposium. The conference will bring together leading national and international experts to discuss the most recent advances in microbial communication, host-microbiome interactions and environmental microbiomes, addressing some of the global challenges we face today.

We look forward to welcoming you in Jena and to an inspiring exchange of ideas!
