Focused on the generation of environmentally friendly biological products obtained from both microbial isolates and other biological sources. Intended applications of such bioproducts are in agriculture for controlling pests, diseases, as plant growth promoters and defense response inducers against pathogens. The symposium will also discuss works related with other similar bioproducts harboring beneficial effects on animal and human health.
Researches referring microbial isolation, biochemical and molecular strain characterization, functional genomics approaches comprising transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and metagenomics studies to elucidate potential mechanisms of action and to describe the interactions of the isolates as well as the bioproducts based on them with plants and other environment organisms will be included. The symposium will also consider studies involving soluble and volatiles compounds involved in the mechanisms of actions of the bioproducts and the generation of efficient formulations for the intended purposes.
