At t he same time\, the rise of paleogenomics is enabling the study of microbia l communities deeper and deeper into the past. It is now possible\, for th e first time\, to combine these advances to investigate microbiome functio nal evolution over the past 100\,000 years in high resolution. This colloq uium brings together diverse experts in microbial genomics\, computational biology\, evolutionary biology\, and archaeology to explore and imagine t he future of microbial paleogenomic research and the emerging field of pal eobiotechnology.\nKeywords: natural products\, microbial evolution\, phylo genomics\, biosynthetic gene clusters\, metagenomics\, ancient DNA\, disea se dynamics\, pathogens\, epidemiology\,\nWe will have four speakers givin g short lectures and a question round on ‘Genomic Evolution Of Microbial Functions: Past To Present’ and then a graduate-only social coffee brea k to allow free discussions with the speakers in an informal setting.\nIf you are a graduate student (M.Sc/Ph.D. or equivalent)\, and would like the chance to informally meet\, network\, or ask questions directly to any of the speakers\, registrations for the graduate coffee session event can be made here.\nIn this event\, we will hear from:\n\n Elke Dittmann (Univers ity of Potsdam\, DE)\n Denise Kühnert (Robert Koch Institute\, DE\; MPI o f Geoanthropology\, DE)\n Marnix Medema (Wageningen University\, NL)\n Tho mas Booth (Technical University of Denmark\, DK)\n\nFor further informatio n\, please contact James Fellows Yates (james.fellows-yates@leibniz-hki.de ) URL:https://www.leibniz-hki.de/en/event/genomic-evolution-of-microbial-func tions-past-to-present.html DTSTART:20240122T140000 DTEND:20240122T160000 LOCATION:Beutenbergstr. 11a\, 07745 Jena END:VEVENT BEGIN:VTIMEZONE TZID:Europe/Berlin BEGIN:STANDARD DTSTART:20240122T140000 TZNAME:CET TZOFFSETTO:+0100 TZOFFSETFROM:+0100 END:STANDARD END:VTIMEZONE END:VCALENDAR
