Project description

Microbial communities are primary drivers of element cycles on a planetary level. As such, the availability of tools and models for behaviour prediction and the proper management of such complex microbial communities, commonly referred to as Microbial Resource Management (MRM), is expected to become increasingly of interest. This IAP will focus on developing knowledge to generate research hypotheses for MRM.
