Studying physiological changes at the cellular level enables the understanding of organism response and adaptation to environmental changes. Microbes are important drivers in all ecosystems, and understanding how the physiology and composition of microbial communities shift in response to stressors is imperative. This workshop is designed to provide training on the principles and use of -omics technologies (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and metagenomics) for the study of microbial response to environmental stress. Local and international experts will give introductory lectures, as well as lead hands-on sessions on designing experiments that apply these technologies for ecological and environmental studies. The workshop will also provide a practical training session on the isolation and identification of soil microfungi, which are key players in the soil ecosystem.
