Ecology, Evolution and Biodiversity

MEEEcology, Evolution and Biodiversity (EEB)–formerly the Microbial Ecology and Evolution track–encompasses many aspects of microbial and phage ecology and the roles of microbes in their natural environments. Our rapidly advancing knowledge of the complexity, immense diversity, and important roles of natural microbial communities will be highlighted in many of the exciting EEB sessions.


EEB01: Microbial Ecology

EEB02: Microbial Evolution and Comparative Genomics

EEB03: Microbial Biodiversity and Systematics
