3rd Plant Microbiome Symposium - Conference Banner

The Plant Microbiome Symposium welcomes academics, professionals and stakeholders to Dundee (UK), to discuss recent scientific achievements in the field and lay the foundations for future collaborative efforts. This meeting builds on the success of the previous symposia to discuss advances in microbial ecology, plant-microbe interactions, molecular biology, chemistry and bioinformatics. It will be run over six sessions, with keynote and offered presentations covering research topics including plant microbiome assembly and microbiome communication, microbiome-associated plant phenotypes, technological advances and translational application.

Our Conference Sustainability Pledge

Conference Venue

Conference Venue - Bonar Hall
The venue is situated on Campus Grounds.  Originally conceived as part of an ambitious plan to create a combined theatre and arts centre for the city, funding shortages meant that Bonar Hall was built separately as an exhibition and events centre for the University, designed by Gillespie Kidd & Coia and named after Sir Herbert Bonar. It opened in 1977, with the separate building for Dundee Rep Theatre eventually built adjacent to it in 1979-82.
