All of them will include sessions on rocky shore ecology, marine citizen science, and marine conservation as well as giving in-sights into careers and Higher Education courses.  You may attend more than one camp. As well as being inspired about the marine environment participants will:

INMARE Workshop on Bioinformatics

Several workshops will be hosted in Bremen this November, the main focus of which will be the rRNA gene sequence. Serving as the overall main study of the workshops, they will aim to enhance participant's understanding of the gene sequence. This training course explains all necessary steps researchers need to take when performing amplicon-based investigations using the rDNA as a marker gene. The course starts with experimental design, including an overview of relevant sequencing technologies, and the selection and evaluation of primers for the amplification of the rRNA gene.
