17th International Symposium on Microbial Ecology - ISME 17
ISME meetings have been organized regularly since 1977, and in 1986 the 4th ISME was hosted by Ljubljana. The 17th ISME was in Leipzig, Germany, where 2250 delegates from 60 countries met. During the symposium eight plenary lectures, 26 different sections and three days of poster presentations were organized. A participant could choose one of six or seven simultaneously running sections daily which covered an extremely wide set of microbial ecology from evolution, modeling of microbial interactions, review on new and existing metabolic pathways, (meta)genomics, interactions between microbes and hosts, biogeochemical cycles, bioinformatics, new methods and innovative bioremediation procedures. It became clearly evident that microbial ecology can offer some answers to many urgent global issues. Some interesting highlights from the symposium are given below.
