Workshop – Symbiosis in the microbial world

The Company of Biologists Workshop ‘Symbiosis in the microbial world: from ecology to genome evolution’ took place at Wiston House, West Sussex, UK, from 5 to 9 November 2017.

Organised by  Laura Eme, F. Joseph Pollock, Jean-Baptiste Raina, Anja Spang, Tom Williams and John Archibald, this Workshop aimed  to forge a much-needed synthesis on the cellular, ecological, evolutionary and even theoretical/philosophical aspects of symbiosis and its role and importance in the evolution of life on Earth. The goal of the Workshop was to highlight points of consensus and underlying connections between these different fields, but also to identify aspects where future efforts of multidisciplinary work should best be focused on.
