This joint meeting of the Biochemical Society, the Society for Experimental Biology and the British Ecological Society is being organised in conjunction with the James Hutton Institute.

This collaborative event is an exciting opportunity to bring together scientists from different disciplines, who work at a range of scales, to address the challenges of understanding complex trophic interactions between organisms above- and belowground.

The conference offers a distinctive mix of presentations, from scientists who lead in the development and application of specific technology platforms to eminent researchers in the field of aboveground-belowground research.

The following three key questions will be addressed.

  • What are the major challenges in above-belowground research?
  • What tools and approaches can be adopted from different disciplines to address these challenges?
  • How can high-throughput tools aid integration across disciplines and scales to facilitate a unified approach to studies of above–belowground systems?

Abstracts and booking

Deadline for submission of abstracts is 13 August 2012.

Booking open soon and registration closes on 10 September 2012.

Full details can be found on the conference website.

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
