Summer School

Design and Control of Microbial Communities
11 – 13th Sep 2023, Leuven, Belgium

by Karoline Faust, Didier Gonze, Leo Lahti

In this summer school, we want to introduce students at the Master and PhD level to different computational methods to manipulate microbial communities to shift them towards a desired composition or function. In addition, we want to broaden the horizon of our students with a couple of research talks on the latest developments in the field. Beyond educational purposes, we also hope to initiate a scientific exchange between speakers and students.
