Aquatic Ecology | Robustness of urban aquatic ecosystems

Sunday 2 - Friday 7 April 2023
Aquatic ecosystems play a crucial role in human health and well-being as a source of drinking water and food (irrigation, fisheries, and aquaculture), recreation, and tourism. Aquatic systems also provide diverse habitats, support high levels of biodiversity and vital ecosystems services and play a vital role in the global carbon cycle and in various nutrient cycles. In this 5-day course we will provide a multifaceted overview of the science on urban aquatic ecosystems and the means by which its robustness can be restored or even improved.

20 - 21 April 2023
In this two day workshop you will learn about two most common long read sequencing technologies: Pacific Bioscience an Oxford Nanopore Technology. You will learn how to work with the data, perform assembly, mapping, and compare the results of both technologies.
