Discover the diverse world of microbes…

Join us in celebrating World Microbiome Day 2020. The day will focus on communicating the diversity of microbes, microbiome habitats, diets to feed and fuel microbiomes and diversity among microbiome researchers.

Microorganisms (e.g. bacteria, fungi, viruses, archaea, etc) can be found everywhere in and on plants, animals, water, soil, food and humans. Within each of those habitats, microorganisms live together in communities called microbiomes. Microbiomes have an effect on (amongst others) human health; therefore, scientists are exploring how these communities of organisms co-exist with each other, with us and our environment.

A public forum entitled 'Discover the diverse world of microbes' is taking place on Tuesday June 23rd all are welcome.

Speakers include:

  • Dr David Clarke
  • Dr Kirsten Berding Harold
  • Liam Walsh, Teagasc Moorepark
  • Philiswa Mbandlwa, Teagasc Moorepark
  • Simon Spichak
  • Laura Wosinska, Teagasc Moorepark
