1st International symposium on Microbial resource management in biotechnology: concepts & applications.
A microbial community consists of a multitude of functional biological entities, each with unique metabolic capacities. When properly organized, the assemblage of these biological entitties represents a powerful resource. Especially for engineered systems, microbial resource management (MRM) is the ultimate objective, yet remains very challenging. Well - documented MRM concepts and tools should allow to steer complex microbial communities, leading to stable and reliable biotechnological processes. In this 1st international MRM symposium, the latest breakthroughs will be presented on more fundamental MRM concepts and on their applications in environmental technologies and nutritional / biomedical sciences.
