11th Summer Course on Marine Ecological & Evolutionary Genomics
Marine genomics knowledge is crucial for understanding the marine environment and for an efficient use of its resources. State of the art NGS methods have revolutionized the field, spawning applications in basic research and environmental management. The course will give insight into population, environmental, biodiversity, comparative, evolutionary and functional genomics through lectures, case studies and computer labs.
Advanced PhD students (at least in their second year) and junior postdocs with a solid knowledge in marine ecological and environmental genomics, phylogenetics and/or population genetics.
The 11th edition of the MEEG Summer Course is sponsored by EuroMarine, the European marine science network (http://www.euromarinenetwork.eu) and EMBRC-France (http://www.embrc-france.fr/fr), the French node of the European Marine Bioresources Center (www.embrc.eu).
