2nd Thünen Symposium on Soil Metagenomics

11-13 December 2013, Braunschweig (Germany)

The 2nd Thünen Symposium on Soil Metagenomics will connect bioinformatics to microbial ecology in order to enhance the capacity to tackle the most burning questions in soil ecology.
The conference will focus on the following topics: “What can we learn about the diversity, dynamics, vulnerability and ecological contributions of soil microbial communities and how can we utilize the new sequencing technologies in applied environmental sciences? Which novel possibilities do we have to understand the complex network within microbial communities, and interactions among its members and with the abiotic and biotic environments?”
The Symposium will be flanked by a Workshop on Bioinformatic Tools in which developers demonstrate and share applications for analyzing nucleic acid information from soils.

Dublin's Festival of Curiosity

25-28 July 2013, Dublin

Dublin’s annual festival of science & culture with FREE events for families to take place from 25 – 28 July 2013. 2012 saw a unique year long celebration of science in Dublin as over 600, 000 people took part in Dublin City of Science 2012 celebrations. Although that year may be over a brand new Festival has evolved from the energy and excitement it generated.

The Festival of Curiosity, Dublin’s annual Festival of Science and Culture, will take place for the very first time this year from 25-28 July. The Festival will provide new opportunities for adults, families and children to come together and experience a hands on adventure in science, play and curious technology. The Festival will transform Dublin’s City Centre into a fun filled curiosity hub for four days in July, with free day-time events for families & children, accompanied by an evening programme of interactive science debates, discussions and shows that will intrigue and challenge the most curious of minds.
