The course, which covers environmental, population, evolutionary, comparative, meta- and functional genomics, will take place in May/June 2015 at the Station Biologique de Roscoff, France. Emerging topics such as community genomics, real time genomic monitoring and systems biology are being integrated into the syllabus.
The course aims to highlight the key role of marine genomics in understanding the marine environment and ensure an efficient use of its resources. Advanced PhD and Junior Post-doc researchers receive integrated training on marine genomics in a research context. The participants are requested to communicate to their home base on what they have learned during the course. The course will foster interaction amongst staff and students leading to long term interactions and in some cases collaborations. The training will be documented in a report and all lectures will be made available online.
