Outline:
MASTER is an EU funded project (€12 million budget), the overall aim of which is to take a global approach to the development of concrete microbiome products (strains, strain mixtures, modulators, kits), foods/feeds, services (bioinformatics analysis, HTS) or processes (standard operating procedures, fermentations, testing in real-time of all microbes in a sample,) with high commercial potential, which will benefit society through improving the quantity, quality and safety of food, across multiple food chains, to include marine, plant, soil, rumen, meat, brewing, fruit and vegetable waste, and fermented foods.
The project commenced in January 2019 and during this webinar, it’s co-ordinator, Prof Paul Cotter, will provide an update on MASTER and MASTER-related activities.
