The workshop “Metaorganisms in Extreme Environments” to be held at Kiel University in March 29-30 2017 will bring together researchers from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and the Collaborative Research Centre 1182 at Kiel University using plant and animal model systems to gain insight into the cellular and genomic events underpinning the origin and evolution of metaorganism diversity and complexity in extreme environments.

The multi-organismic nature of life ( V )

Thomas Bosch interviews the leading experts in the emerging field of metaorganism research

In a series of short interviews Thomas Bosch talks in the Collaborative Research Center “Origin and function of Metaorganisms” with leading experts in symbiosis research which have initiated a paradigm shift in the Life Sciences: organisms, health and disease are fundamentally multiorganismic.

Prof. Hendrik Poinar of McMaster University lines out how ‘time travel’ via ancient DNA-studies helps to unravel the evolution of early ancestral holobionts.

Mini Symposium

on Animal-Microbe Symbioses at DZG Meeting

bosch_dzg_meeting_2016-855x480As a novelty, the German Zoological Society (DZG) this year introduced a new mini symposium into their meetings.

Prof. Thomas Bosch, conference chair of the 109th Annual Meeting of the DZG and head of the Collaborative Research Centre 1182 “Origin and Function of Metaorganisms”, used this oppurtunity to hold a mini symposium on animal-microbe symbioses – and thus presented the research scope of Kiel University’s new research centre to a broad audience of fellow scientists.

Mensch, Mikrobiom und Kieler Forschung

… “Vielleicht kommt die Botschaft, dass Arbeitsteilung, Kooperation und Partnerschaft fundamentale Merkmale aller Lebewesen sind, gerade recht. Noch steht die Mikrobiomforschung am Anfang ihrer Entwicklung, eines ist aber schon jetzt klar: Zum Miteinander gibt es keine Alternative. Wir haben allen Grund, die Mikroben, die zu unserer metaorganismischen Existenz gehören, zu schonen und wertzuschätzen. In diesem Sinne: Mögen unsere Symbionten noch lange mit uns sein!”
