Microbiome Stakeholder Briefing #2: Demystifying the Phytobiome
Hosted by The American Society for Microbiology (ASM), the American Phytopathological Society, and the Soil Science Society of America

Microbiome research is fundamental to health, climate, and ecosystems. Some of the most important developments in modern science have resulted from harnessing the power of microbes, from vaccine development for smallpox to the development of biofuels. This briefing series will allow Members of Congress and their staff to gain exciting, first-hand knowledge on a variety of topics centered on microbiome research across the spectrum of scientific disciplines—from the human microbiome and gut health to agriculture and soil health, to space, the oceans, and beyond.

Demystifying the Phytobiome

This webinar, jointly sponsored by the American Phytopathological Society, the Soil Science Society of America, and the American Society for Microbiology, will demonstrate why continued federal investments in microbiome science are necessary to support the plant ecosystems that help sustain life as we know it on planet Earth. Panelists will discuss what is needed to maintain progress in discovery through basic research and accelerate the translation of these findings into new and game-changing technologies that affect animal and human health, and the environment around us, particularly as we face daunting challenges like climate change.
