23. June: Digital Meta at Kiel Week

We will present our new interactive Scientific Poster „Digital Meta“ on Saturday, June 23, at Kiel University’s exhibition tent at Kiel Week.

The SciPoster is an multimedia-exhibit that showcases the complex scientific contents of host-microbe interactions. Introducing five different model organisms, users are invited to explore the coexistence of bacterial symbionts with their multicelluar hosts on a 65 inch touchscreen. Much like a smartphone or tablet, the interactive Poster is navigated using intuitive touch and swipe gestures. By choosing different paths through the multi-layered content, each user can create his or her individual access to the world of metaorganism research. The „Digital Meta“-project is a joint effort of Kiel University`s CRC 1182 together with Kiel based science communication agency Science Communication Lab.
