Microbiomes Underpinning Agriculture – a view from Twitter

The Microbiomes Underpinning Agriculture Focused Meeting took place at the Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork, Ireland, between 1–2 October. We’ve turned to Twitter to look at some of the highlights of the meeting. 

While the last preparations were being made at the venue, delegates used their journeys to Cork to share their excitement about the upcoming event.

The morning kicked off with a welcome address from organiser Fiona Brennan.

Which was followed by a morning of talks on plant and soil microbiomes.

Lunch and an evening drinks reception provided the chance to network, socialise and to view the more than 50 posters on display.

Congratulations to the Microbial Genomics Poster Prize winner, Gareth Raynes, as well as to Nicholas Waters and Céline Ribière for winning the 2nd and 3rd prizes!

Day two kicked off with talks on animal microbiomes, followed by a Microbiome Methods workshop at Moorepark Food Research Centre.

We were thrilled to read the lovely feedback shared by delegates.

We hope that all those that attended enjoyed the meeting and hope to see you at another Society event soon.
