Workshop: Chemical and Genomic Insight to Parasitic and Mutualistic Host-Microbe Interactions

Christine Beemelmanns is organizing a PhD workshop in Copenhagen together with her collaborators.

Location: Section for Ecology and Evolution, Kollokvierum 1, Building 3, 1st floor, Universitetsparken 15, 2100 Copenhagen East

Advances over the past years have provided a range of genomic and chemical tools applicable to research in host-microbe interactions ranging from mutualistic to parasitic. This course will introduce and critically address these tools with the primary objective of providing PhD students with extensive knowledge of the applicability of tools to their own work. The course mainly addresses PhD students early in their PhD who work with interactions between hosts and microbes at the molecular level.
Parasites and mutualists are omnipresent and play major roles in the ecology and evolution of the organisms involved. The course will provide an overview of the diversity of symbiotic systems with particular focus on examples, where genomics and chemical tools have been employed to shed new light on interactions. Students will be introduced to applicable methodologies in microbial interaction research.
The course will among other things include lectures and workshops on:

  • Host and microbe biology
  • Genomics and metagenomics
  • Transcriptomics and proteomics
  • Signalling molecules, natural products and metabolomics

There will also be presentations introducing PhD projects and how the tools and techniques examined during the workshops could potentially be incorporated.
