Danish Microbiological Society symposium: Climate change: impact on polar and alpine microbiology

09 July 2019 10:00 - 11:00

The session "Climate change: impact on polar and alpine microbiology" will focus on the role of the arctic microbiomes into the context of climate change. The global heating in the arctic is much higher than anywhere on the globe and thus it’s interesting to study how this influence the arctic microbiomes – and if possible how the arctic microbiomes influence the changing climate. The session will be highlighting new sequencing technologies like the “totalRNA” technique that at the same time gives a full picture of the microbial community (archae, bacteria, fungi and protest) and some insights into major genes being expressed
