1st Applied HoloGenomics Conference

    13th - 15th September 2022, Bilbao, Spain

    Information to be added soon

    Understanding host-microbiota interactions is increasingly recognised as an essential step to improve the efficacy and efficiency of applied biological processes within medicine, agriculture and nature conservation. As such, the joint study of eukaryotic hosts and their associated microbial communities using molecular tools, namely hologenomics, holds the promise to contribute towards addressing some of the global challenges in the 21st Century. 

    The 1st Applied HoloGenomics conference aims to highlight key discoveries and novel approaches that aim at understanding the interactions of plant and animal hosts with their associated microbial communities, which could be directly or potentially applied into management and practice.


    In brief this conference will aim to cover these three key questions: 

    • What are the current uses of hologenomics?

    • What societal and industrial needs of the 21st century could be addressed through hologenomic approaches? 

    • How can hologenomics be used to link basic and applied research questions?


    The program (under preparation) will be designed to cover both a wide range of fundamental and applied themes within hologenomics research, and incorporate panel discussions about the future possibilities and needs of industry and society. We are pleased to welcome guest speakers at the forefront of their fields, working within human health, agrisciences and more, whether representing academia or industry.
