ALgal Microbiome: Friends and Foes (ALFF): ITN Workshop

Deciphering Symbiotic Interactions with Metabolomics

Course Programme: alff_course-3-september-2016-jena_abr

Our third ALFF course was organised by FSU and began with each researcher giving an in-depth presentation of progress on their project. These were followed by a 3 day theoretical and practical course on metabolomics, starting with a keynote lecture delivered by Dr Antje Burse, of Friedrich Schiller University, on the chemical ecology of plant-beetle interactions.

ALFF is a 4 year programme funded by the prestigious Horizon 2020 MSC Initial Training Networks (ITN) programme of the European Union to develop 15 outstanding researchers in the fields of algal biotechnology and aquaculture. Their work will contribute to the future development of these major growth industries. ALFF combines multidisciplinary research-based projects, each with a focus on either pathogens, mutualistic symbionts, endosymbiotic micro-organisms, biofilms or bioinformatics.
