Recent Advances on the Fish Skin Microbiomes – Challenges in deciphering their shaping factors

Targeting Microbiota 2021 Amir SzitenbergDr. Amir Szitenberg from Arava and Dead Sea Science Center, Israel will  join the Targeting  Microbiota Congress which will be held on October 20-22, 2021 and will present a talk entitled "Recent advances on the fish skin microbiomes – challenges in deciphering their shaping factors".

Summary of Talk: The gut, skin and gill microbiota in fish are of paramount importance to their nutrition, health, immune system, interactions with the changing environment and their general well being. On top of co-phylogenetic influences, these microbiota are affected by the geography, the local physicochemistry and ecology, as well as the fish species life-style.  Disentangling the most important factors in the wild is challenging, and yet it is important in order to understand the interface of aquaculture and conservation, or to develop effective and viable biotechnological processes. This talk will discuss recent advances in our understanding of these factors and how this knowledge can be harnessed to grow and conserve fish species.
