When: August 28th, 10am Central Standard Time
Is there enough scientific evidence to conclude that the nuclear genome, mitochondria and microbiome of an animal or plant represent an interwoven evolutionary unit called the "hologenome"? This google + hangout seeks to assemble diverse opinions on the topic in order to broadcast the pros and cons of the evidence and reason a consensus from different vantage points.
Key agenda items will include:
- Is the word "hologenome" jargon or useful to the life sciences?
- What additional evidence is required to broadly substantiate the hologenome concept of Life?
- What will be the rules, if there are any rules, of the hologenome?
- Is the hologenome part of a New Synthesis in biology?
We welcome everyone's input. Please join us on August 28th and share the announcement.
