At the same time\, the rise of paleo genomics is enabling the study of microbial communities deeper and deeper into the past. It is now possible\, for the first time\, to combine these advances to investigate microbiome functional evolution over the past 100\ ,000 years in high resolution. This colloquium brings together diverse exp erts in microbial genomics\, computational biology\, natural product chemi stry\, and archaeology to explore and imagine the future of microbial pale ogenomic research and the emerging field of paleobiotechnology.\nWe will h ave three speakers giving short lectures on ‘Microbiome functional evolu tion: past to present’ and then an open social coffee break to allow fre e discussions with the speakers.\nFor this event\, we will hear from:\n\n Nadine Ziemert (University of Tübingen\, DE)\n Katerina Guschanski (Unive rsity of Edinburgh\, UK)\n Antonio Fernandez-Guerra (University of Copenha gen\, DK)\n\nFor further information\, please contact James Fellows Yates (\n  URL: t-to-present.html DTSTART:20230320T130000 DTEND:20230320T150000 LOCATION:Hermann-Löns-Str. 70\, 07745 Jena END:VEVENT BEGIN:VTIMEZONE TZID:Europe/Berlin BEGIN:STANDARD DTSTART:20230320T130000 TZNAME:CET TZOFFSETTO:+0100 TZOFFSETFROM:+0100 END:STANDARD END:VTIMEZONE END:VCALENDAR
