Tvärminne Polar Microbes Symposium 2018
This small symposium (40 participants) is intended to provide a unique opportunity to bring together molecular microbial ecologists specialized in different organism groups, share our latest results, and discuss methodological problems as well as the future prospects in the field, including practical international collaboration. The environmental focus will be on sea ice environments, but excellent research in other cryospheric environments is also invited. The methods to be discussed will focus on 'omics' techniques, ranging from single cells to metagenomes, but exciting research using additional methods will be considered as well.
