Microbiomes From Different Habitats: Soil, Water and Gut

Oct. 16-17, 2018

Lincoln Embassy Suites Hotel


A two-day symposium, “Microbiomes From Different Habitats: Soil, Water and Gut,” gathers experts Oct. 16-17 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in downtown Lincoln. Registration (free) closes October 1. Speakers include The Atlantic’s Ed Yong, and a special session offers an interactive workshop on how scientists can succeed in media interviews.

This conference is part of the Nebraska Research & Innovation Conference (NRIC) annual series, conducted by Nebraska EPSCoR and funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). In 2016 a five-year, $20 million NSF project established the Center for Root & Rhizobiome Innovation (CRRI): a collaboration to research crop productivity focused on plants’ root microbiome. CRRI scientists aim to grow scientific knowledge that will better feed the world’s growing population.

Students and faculty interested in attending the 2018 NRIC event should register at http://nric.nebraska.edu (note: deadline for discount hotel room reservations at the group rate is September 24). Attendees may also present a relevant poster in the event’s poster session on the afternoon of October 16 (posters must be registered no later than October 1).
