ALGAL BIOTECHNOLOGY – TECHNIQUES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE SUSTAINABLE BIOECONOMY

ALGAL BIOTECHNOLOGY – TECHNIQUES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE SUSTAINABLE BIOECONOMY

The aim of this professional development course is to provide introductory and advanced hands-on training and theory in algal biology, culturing, growth and subsequent molecular and metabolite analysis under laboratory and small scale pilot facilities. 

The workshop in 2020 will run for two days at the University of Cambridge Algal Innovation Centre (AIC) followed by courses at Iceland, Germany and Southern Europe. The successful format builds on the courses run in 2018 and 2019 includes a daily programme of lecture/seminars that introduces the theory of techniques, SOPs best practice, and a demonstration of equipment and tours. The programme will provide an unrivalled opportunity for postgraduate, postdoctorate and industry researchers and entrepreneurs to be trained in algal biotechnology research and to understand the opportunities available for its incorporation in the sustainable food bioeconomy.
