Next Generation Taxonomy: Ciliophora and their bacterial symbionts as a proof of concept

Project description

Restoring taxonomy’s past glory

Having undergone a crisis in recent decades, taxonomy – the science of classifying biological organisms based on shared characteristics – needs to be rejuvenated. The integration of the most advanced genomics and bioinformatics techniques, also taking into account the holobiont concept, has been proposed as a solution. The EU-funded NGTax project aims to expand and explore this approach by creating an international and inter-sectoral network of organisations across the EU, Africa, China and Russia. To this end, it will work on a joint research programme in next-generation taxonomy of ciliates and their symbionts, constituting a holobiontic unit.
