Digital Meta: Interactive Scientific Poster on Metaorganism-Research
The interactive Scientific Poster „Digital Meta“ 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.
