Genomics and Metabolomics in a Host-Microbe Symbiosis Network

Project description

A European network for host–microbe symbiosis research

Research into host–microbe interactions constitutes a field of growing interest with tremendous impact on human health. The EU-funded SymbNET project brings together world leading research institutions with expertise in host–microbe symbiosis under a joint European network. The project will promote transfer of knowledge, collaborative projects and staff exchange visits among the participating institutions. Alongside the sponsoring of new technologies, SymbNET will also help establish a centre of excellence in host–microbe symbiosis research in Portugal. Training, mentoring and networking activities targeted at early-stage researchers will help fuel research in the field for generations to come.
