Soehngen Institute of Anaerobic Microbiology (SIAM) organises for the first time the Summer School Breathless microbes: Techniques and theory in anaerobic microbiology at Wageningen University & Research.
Anaerobic microbiology is a key research field to address present and future challenges in industry and society. Anaerobic microbes turn waste products into biogas and biofuels. In this course relevant theoretical background on the topic will be provided next to hands-on experiments with high and low tech equipment.
