EPS Symposium 200th birth year of Gregor Mendel

8 June 2022
This year we celebrate the 200th birth year of Gregor Mendel (1822-1884), the founder of genetics. According to the historian of science Jan Sapp: “There is no greater legend in the history of science than that of the experiments of Gregor Mendel. Three moments in this legend are extraordinary: 1) how in the 1860s, Mendel single-mindedly discovered the laws governing the inheritance of individual characters; 2) how the scientific world failed to recognize the monumental importance of these findings during its life-time; 3) the remarkable “rediscovery” in 1900 of what later came to be called Mendelism”.

Wageningen Integration for impact (WIFI) hybrid event

Monday 13 - Tuesday 14 June 2022
The Interdisciplinary Research and Education Fund (INREF) and the Knowledge Base (KB) Programme on Food Security and Valuing Water, both part of Wageningen University & Research (WUR), jointly organise an international science-policy event in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). During the event we will look at the results of past and current running INREF and KB projects (and potentially other interdisciplinary programmes) in search of recommendations for future inter- and transdisciplinary research, policy, education and implementation programmes.

Ecology of Soil Microorganisms 2022

19 - 23 June 2022
We are pleased to invite you to the 4th conference on the Ecology of Soil Microorganisms to be held in Prague from 19 to 23 June 2022. This will be the fourth conference of the series of triennial symposia on this topic, last organized in Helsinky in 2018. The conference is planned as an interdisciplinary platform that should offer as much interaction among various subjects within microbial ecology as possible. This includes questions addressing individual microbes, microbial communities as well as their interactions with the environment and other soil biota. We aim to link the current molecular “omics” methods such as metagenomics, metatranscriptomics and metaproteomics with approaches based on soil chemical and biochemical analyses, the exploration of soil fauna and plant ecology. The other important goal of the conference is a wide scope covering the ecology of all microbes: bacteria and fungi as well as archaea and protozoa.
