This workshop seeks to bring together a multidisciplinary group of experts to work with data from areas in African and Mediterannean countries which are classified as data-poor areas. The workshop aim is to make the data visible through training and a synthesis of the results.
This event covers the topic of marine science as a provider of new concepts for innovation and technology. The workshop intends to progress the development of a strategy for educating the next generation of marine researchers by inviting feedback from stakeholder groups including young professionals involved in marine science and engineering. The opinion from this group of stakeholders will be of major importance for the European Marine Board (EMB) Future Science Brief as well as for shaping future new initiatives within EuroMarine.
The workshop Dredging & the environment will be held from 19 to 21 April 2016 in Gent (Belgium). This course gives a challenging view on the upcoming dredging and marine works and their interaction with the environment. Based on a series of illustrative running projects, the actual picture on the negative environmental impacts of dredging activities is shifted towards an inviting and inspiring search for global solutions and added value for the project’s ecosystem.
The Workshop in Statistical Genetics will be held from 8 to 9 September 2016 at CCMAR in Faro (Portugal). The workshop will deal with a unified treatment for the analysis of discrete genetic data, starting with estimates and sample variances of allele frequencies to illustrate genetic vs statistical sampling and Bayesian approaches. A detailed look at Hardy-Weinberg and linkage disequilibrium, including the use of exact tests with mid-p-values and a new look at X-chromosome Hardy-Weinberg testing.
Learn the theory and practice of Marine Genomics through specialist tuition and hands-on practical exercises. The course details all aspects of the genomic analysis of marine organisms, and requires no previous specialist knowledge. Participants will take part in seminar-style sessions, with theory interspersed with computational exercises and one-to-one tuition. See the programme for details.
