EMBO Workshop Integrative biology: From molecules to ecosystems in extreme environments 22 – 25 April 2019 | Santiago, Chile

This workshop aims to fuse Chilean expertise on biodiversity and local extremophiles with European expertise in metabolic and damage-response pathways, high-throughput sequencing, proteomic and bioinformatics, and biotechnology platforms to develop a set of blueprints for systems adaptations in changing climates and ecosystems. The knowledge gained from studying these extremophiles and diversity should lead to the engineering of better agro- and aqua-culture species that can survive climate changes, optimizing microorganisms to produce new synthetic polymers based on how they resist the elements and/or degrade manufacturing byproducts, and developing better mechanisms for treating hypoxia and damage from other environmental stresses.
