CRC 1182-Mini Symposium on Animal-Microbe Symbioses @ DZG Meeting

As a novelty, the German Zoological Society (DZG) this year introduced a new mini symposium into their meetings, which allows the organizers of the annual DZG-meetings to present their individual research topic in a broader perspective.

Prof. Thomas Bosch, conference chair of the 109th Annual Meeting of the DZG and head of the Collaborative Research Centre 1182 “Origin and Function of Metaorganisms”, used this oppurtunity to hold a mini symposium on animal-microbe symbioses – and thus presented the research scope of Kiel University’s new research centre to a broad audience of fellow scientists.

Prof. Ute Hentschel Humeida, member of the CRC 1182, and PD Dr. Marko Rohlfs (University of Goettingen) chaired the symposium with the keynote lecture by Prof. Martin Kaltenpoth (Mainz University).
