The Center for Microbial Systems is built on expertise and ideas from across the University of Michigan. Our mission is to promote discoveries that help understand and manage the microbial communities that are essential for the well-being of humans and the planet they inhabit.

This webpage lists upcoming seminars and other events at U-M that are centered on microbes.  It includes searchable databases of U-M people (from graduate students to faculty) who are interested in microbes, and courses that are relevant to students of microbiology.  Cross disciplinary research on microbial communities is highlighted, with introductions to core laboratory services that support such projects.  Research and career opportunities for students and staff, both at this university and elsewhere, are advertised.
