Microbiomes have the capacity to substantially influence their environment in novel ways, and therefore engineering and applying these technologies has broad implications for industry, agriculture, medicine, and other biotechnology sectors.

This writing workshop will be a critical opportunity to refine the scope, topics, and themes of a roadmap for microbiome engineering, and to create the technical content of the roadmap. Workshop activities are expected to include:

  • Plenary discussions addressing scope, high-level goals and challenges, and appropriateness of milestones;
  • Breakout groups to draft and revise content specific to technical themes and/or application spaces; and
  • Plenary and breakout group review of material.
