Description

Bacterial-fungal interactions (BFI) are central to the functioning of a multitude of ecosystems. However, since both are microorganisms, in order to study them, one has to use either indirect methods such as molecular biology or direct observational methods such as microscopy. In this 2-day workshop some of the latest advances in the field of microfluidics applied to microbial interactions will be presented. Microfluidics is a technology that allows miniaturizing some features of specific ecosystems in order to study BFI at the cellular level with microscopy methods. We will combine lectures and discussion with practical hands-on training in order to highlight to students what are the strength and limitations of microfluidics-based methods.
