DNA metabarcoding is a rapidly evolving method for assessing biodiversity from environmental DNA and bulk samples. It has a wide range of applications: biodiversity monitoring, animal diet assessment, reconstruction of paleo communities, among others. DNA metabarcoding uses molecular techniques such as PCR and next generation sequencing, and integrates skills in bioinformatics and biostatistics with classical ecological knowledge.
The DNA metabarcoding spring school is now in its seventh edition, and this year it is co-organized by the metabarcoding.org team and the CIBIO at Porto - Portugal The DNA metabarcoding spring school will be held
from May 1st to 5th, 2017
The school will be divided in two parts:
Two days of lectures, May 1st and 2nd.
Three days of practicals
All the lectures and the practicals will be taught in English
