The first ICES course of the year, centres on the ICES fish stocks for which data and knowledge are insufficient to conduct a full analytical assessment of their state and exploitation. Known as category 3 and 4 stocks, these constitute over 30% of all stocks for which ICES provides advice.
The 4-days school aims at PhD-level students and early stage scientists with beginner or no notions of data assimilation intending to apply data assimilation as part of their research. The crash course will cover the basic notions of data assimilation, focusing on ensemble methods, illustrated with real-scale / operational applications and with the aid of practical exercises.
The event is organised in the framework of the Nordic Countries Centre of Excellence EmblA (https://embla.nersc.no/).
A new edition of an international two-week course on Established and Emerging Marine Model Organisms will take place at the Station Biologique Roscoff (France) on March, 6-17th 2017. The course will include theoretical lectures as well as practical lab work on key marine taxa currently used as experimental paradigms in several fields of biological research. Students will be actively involved in lab work, discussions and debates on modern reference literature. Participation to the course requires knowledge of fundamental principles of molecular biology and developmental genetics.
Looking for a Master's programme answering the needs of Blue Growth and Marine Biological Resources? Join the first international study programme focussed on study and management of the Biological Resources from the Sea. The IMBRSea programme is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and functions in close contact with the European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC), a leading European distributed research infrastructure.
Venue: European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) - Training Room 2 - Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, CB10 1SD, United Kingdom
Location: European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) - Training Room 2 - Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, CB10 1SD, United Kingdom
The workshop will give participants the chance to discuss results from multiple time series providing phytoplankton data into the MSFD process throughout Europe, and ensure consistency in identification across multiple methods
The workshop will train early career scientists, technical and support staff in identification of key marine phytoplankton taxa. These skills are needed to monitor and predict future distributions and impacts of a changing environment.
15 lecturers will interact with 30 additional student participants at the graduate or junior postgraduate research level to exchange ideas between experienced and young ocean researchers.
18 students of at least the level of second year PhD training will participate in this course, which aims to demonstrate the key role of marine genomics for the understanding of the marine ecosystem and its organisms, and for an efficient and sustainable use of its resources. The course is also open to particpants external to EuroMarine.
