Microorganisms represent the greatest diversity of life on earth and have evolved fascinating metabolic adaptations. Some ensure survival in challenging environments, others allow mutualistic interactions with plant or animal hosts and provide the resulting holobiont with emerging properties that are of a selective advantage. This multi-national workshop brings together scientists that study such adaptations from various angles, often combining molecular with cultivation-based or process-oriented approaches. The topics range from metabolic strategies of bacteria and archaea that exploit even small amounts of energy in anoxic environments, to interactions among microbes and contributions of host-associated microbiomes to host nutrition or defense.
