The WCMR participated in a panel of international experts as part of our membership representing Canada in the international, EU funded project MicrobiomeSupport. The outcome of this workshop and subsequent online survey was to propose a widely accepted definition of 'microbiome', which was just published in the journal Microbiome.
The WCMR event Hack the Plastics, had a successful weekend at the University of Waterloo on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Feb 28-Mar 1). Photo gallery.
Students from many different disciplines and Universities and Colleges from around Ontario came out to spend the weekend coming up with ways to solve problems related to single-use plastics and incorporating microbes into their solution.
