Members of the CALS community are invited to participate in “Microbiomes: People and the Planet,” a fall 2017 colloquium that features speakers from UW-Madison and other institutions presenting microbiome-related work in the biological, environmental and social sciences.

Beginning Sept. 19, the weekly seminar series will be held every Tuesday from 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. in room 270 of the Soil Science Building. Following each seminar, coffee, water and light snacks will be available in Room 258 Soil Science (adjacent to the seminar room).

The seminar is open to the entire campus community. It is also being offered as a special topics class to encourage student participation.
