    Workshop-Manipulating Phytobiomes: Challenges and Opportunities
    100 Life Sciences Building (Berg Auditorium)
    This workshop will focus on key scientific and societal hurdles that will need to be addressed in order to move phytobiome manipulation from theory to application. Activities will include a combination of targeted talks, a breakout session and a summary session that will aim to identify and propose potential solutions for both scientific challenges associated with developing novel and transformative agricultural practices, as well as challenges associated with effectively communicating these new practices to regulatory entities, growers, and the general public.
