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.
