Hosted by the CRC 1182, Kiel Life Science, Kiel Plant Center, and SymbNET, “Fungi – the forgotten component of metaorganisms” is designed to be a small and focused meeting including experts and colleagues from different disciplines of research including medical mycology, plant pathology, and fungal genetics.

The aim of this symposium is to share our experiences and knowledge across discipline boundaries and discuss how together we can better explore the role of fungi in animal and plant metaorganisms systems.
