Global food production and climate change create enormous societal challenges that come with microbial, ecological, and infectious disease consequences, such as antimicrobial resistance and vector-borne diseases. However, the world’s microbes may also provide solutions, such as eradication of mosquitos or enhanced crop yields. Join the meeting to get inspired about the microbiological consequences and solutions to take on these global challenges.
