Date(s) - 14/11/2017 - 17/11/2017
9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Location: University of Oslo, Blindernveien 31, Oslo, Norway

A PhD Course (2 ECTS) Offered by The National Graduate School in Infection Biology and Antimicrobials at the University of Oslo, Blindern Campus, November 14th-17th, 2017.

This is an advanced topic graduate-level course with lectures provided mostly by invited distinguished scientists (see below for confirmed speakers).

The course covers the themes and diversities of plant and animal associations with microbes that involve beneficial relationships (symbiosis). Emphasis will be placed on the molecular mechanisms acting within both the microbe and host that create, shape and define the symbiotic state. The course provides insight into the critical (but often unappreciated) role of both exo- and endo-symbionts to evolutionary processes.
