FEW PLACES STILL AVAILABLE – LATE APPLICATIONS CONSIDERED
Environmental DNA (eDNA) coupled with metabarcoding represents a powerful tool for investigating ecosystem complexity and revealing hidden biodiversity. This novel approach is revolutionising the way we assess and monitor aquatic ecosystems.
This course will provide the students with the basic knowledge and skills required to apply the eDNA metabarcoding approach in aquatic environments. The course program includes a combination of lectures, field activities, lab-work and data analysis to provide the students with a thorough understanding of the use of eDNA in molecular ecology, with hands-on experience.
The course, organised in collaboration with University of Salford, UK will be held on the scenic island of Ortigia, the historic centre of Siracusa in Sicily, Italy.
