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.
This course is open to 70 PhD students, post-doctoral scientists and possibly young academics. The curriculum will include topics covering the leading edge of science in ocean observing systems, as well as the latest methods and techniques for analysis, data assimilation and ocean modelling.
The 16s rRNA gene has become the standard marker for prokaryote phylogenetic analysis, and combined with high-throughput sequencing technologies it is widely used to infer the structure and composition of microbial communities. Due to the continuous improvements in sequencing technologies and bioinformatics tools, there is a wide choice of methods for sequencing and analysing 16S rRNA gene assemblies.
