Lunch time meeting, ISME15@Seoul
“Sleeping beauties -Dormancy of bacteria in nature -”
-Organizers; Shin Haruta (Tokyo Metropolitan University), Yoshiteru Aoi (Hiroshima University)
-room R1A in COEX center
-Tuesday 26 August, 12:00 – 13:30
The impact, importance and new aspects of “dormancy” in microbial ecology will be discussed in this session. It is well known that various types of microorganisms can enter non-growing states under the condition which are not suitable for their growth as a survival strategy, then, somehow they sense the change of condition and restart growth. It has gradually become apparent that the “dormancy” probably is relevant to numbers of mysterious microbial phenomena, and can be a key word for several important microbial issues. The purpose of this session is to share and to have discussion on the several recent findings and questions on microbial dormancy.
