FMBN@IAFP Nantes

Dr. Sandrine Guillou has kindly invited me to give a talk at IAFP’s European Symposium on Food Safety in Nantes. Il will be speaking in symposium S4 (Network Analysis to Better Decipher Functions and Dynamics of Food Microbial Ecosystems) and the title of my talk is: “Shining Light on Networks in Food Microbiomes: FoodMicrobionet and the ShinyFMBN App“. You can download the presentation here. While we wait for the review of the manuscript I have submitted, you can cite FMBN 3.1 using this talk: Parente, E., Ricciardi, A., Zotta, T. 2019.
