NERC-MDIBL Environmental Genomics and Metabolomics 2018
Birmingham Metabolomics Training Centre, School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK
Next Course date:
4 - 9 March 2018
The course is designed to train PhD students and early-career post-doctoral scientists.
A NERC funded short course to guide genomics and metabolomics research applied to environmental science
This 5 day course highlights a multi-omics approach (systems biology) approach to research in the environmental scientists, investigating how gene function and metabolism are influenced by environmental conditions while accounting for natural variation within and among natural populations. The course is built on the paradigm that this multidisciplinary research field encompassing ecology, evolution, toxicology, biostatistics and informatics will most effectively grow by training early career scientists to
(a) design large-scale Next Generation Sequencing and Metabolomics experiments and
(b) address the challenges of manipulating and analysing population-level omics data
Daphnia is used for training because of its growing use as a model system in the environmental sciences and for improving environmental health protection, yet the skills learned during the course will be applicable to all study systems with mature genomics and metabolomics resources.
The course will provide a significant introduction, considerable hands-on experience and networking opportunities so that participants can initiate their own environmental omics studies and launch Environmental Scientists careers in academic and industry.
NERC bursaries are available for this course, covering attendees' registration, travel and accomodations cost.
Sixteen (16) bursaries are available for the metabolomics track
