Second Metabarcoding Spring School in Crete

Event Date: 
Mon, 2013-05-13 09:00 - Fri, 2013-05-17 20:00

After the success of the 1st DNA Metabarcoding Spring School in French Alps, we organize the 2nd one in Crete, which includes lectures and bioinformatic practical sessions on metabarcoding. The School is open for 20 participants (post-graduate students or researchers) that will attend both lectures and practicals, and for 30 additional participants that will follow only the lectures.

The focus will be mainly on marine biodiversity, however people from all fields of metabarcoding are encouraged to participate.
