WG Microbiome management

The WG Microbiome Management focuses on the assembly, interaction, and function of the microbiome of environmental and natural ecosystems. The main goals of Microbiome Management are

  • Understanding the interlinked effects of the microbiome in circular bio economy,
  • Development of microbiome-based products and management strategies,
  • To establish integrative, eco-evolutionary understanding of microbiomes for sustainable future.

The working group further aims to engineering microbiomes and developing management strategies to:

  • mitigate anthropogenic effect such as drought, salinity, emission, and climate warming
  • facilitate sustainable crop and animal production and Environmentally-friendly disease control strategy
  • increase the efficiency of conversion of biomass to energy and other byproducts

We implement cutting-edge interdisciplinary methods inducing Omics (e.g., Metagenomics, Metatranscriptomics, Metabolomics) Bioinformatics (prediction models and Network analysis), Culturomics & Microfluidics.
