University Course on Molecular Analysis of Trophic Interactions (MATI)
14th – 25th of September 2015, Innsbruck, Austria
Molecular approaches offer exciting possibilities to study trophic interactions. Within the last decade considerable progress has been made in DNA-based methodology to unravel who eats what including predator-prey, host-parasitoid and herbivore-plant interactions across ecosystems. This course provides a hands-on introduction to molecular trophic ecology and offers the opportunity to discuss how to best apply these methods to your own research project.
By completing this course module the participants will have achieved a general understanding of the concepts of DNA-based diagnostics. They will be able to apply and develop basic molecular assays with the focus on the analysis of trophic interactions.
Online Enrollment until 31st of July 2015.
