Metabarcoding for diet analysis and environmental DNA - Tuesday 15 & Thursday 17 March 2022
Sequencing DNA barcodes from mixed sources of DNA is an increasingly used way to survey biodiversity, whether analysing dietary content from faecal-derived DNA or monitoring aquatic species from water-derived DNA. This course will give an overview of metabarcoding with different barcoding genes to target particular taxa. Using an example data set we will go from raw sequence data through to assigning taxonomy to the sequence variants.

Places are restricted to UK-based researchers and only 20 places are available so please only register if you intend on attending.

The workshop will be held over two days on Tuesday 15 and Thursday 17 March, 10am-4pm, with registration opening 9.30am on Tuesday.

The deadline to register is Monday 1st March. You will hear later that week whether you have been invited and will need to confirm your attendance.
