*Dear all,*


We are pleased to announce applications are open for a CABANA training 
workshop in Brazil this September 2019.

The GCRF-fundedCABANA project <http://www.cabana.online/>is also 
delighted to offer travel fellowships of up to £1125 GBP for researchers 
to attend these workshops. The fellowships are open to scientists from 
Latin America at any stage of their career. Early-stage researchers and 
researchers from minority groups are especially encouraged to apply.

Title:Bioinformatics and Biodiversity - Unlocking new tools for 
biodiversity research

Venue:Vale Institute of Technology (ITV), Belem, Para, Brazil

Dates:2-4 September 2019

Deadline for Applications: 29th July 2019

Registration fee:130R$

Registration Link:https://forms.gle/S7RCNTdqfWub6bR66


This workshop will provide training and insights into barcoding and 
metabarcoding for biodiversity studies, including general approaches and 
technologies in different contexts. Sessions will be delivered by 
biodiversity experts from across Latin America and beyond. Sample 
collection and processing, selecting appropriate markers and various 
analysis methods will be covered and regulatory issues in Latin America 
will also be discussed.

Target Audience

This course is aimed at a broad audience. We will welcome researchers 
from postgraduate level upwards who conduct biodiversity studies and are 
interested in initiating or boosting molecular and computational 
approaches to their work. We also welcome participation from those in 
industry, government, funding agencies or other stakeholders interested 
in establishing projects or programs on the use of molecular tools for 
biodiversity assessment, monitoring or species identification.

The workshop will present a higher level view of the topic. Specific 
molecular or computational skills are not necessary. However, a general 
understanding of molecular approaches will be very useful, as will an 
understanding of current practices for biodiversity assessment.

Please forward this call through your networks and local bioinformatics 

We wish you the best with your applications.

Kind regards
