We are pleased to announce that this year the seventh DNA Metabarcoding Spring School will held in Porto (Portugal) and will be organized in collaboration with Simon Jarman and the CBIO Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic resources. The DNA metabarcoding spring school will be held from May 1st to 5th, 2017.
The school will be divided in two parts:
Two days of lectures, May 1st and 2nd.
Three days of practicals
All the lectures and the practicals will be taught in English

The number of participants in the practical portion is limited to 24.
Candidates can apply for the school by sending an email. The email must contain a brief curriculum vitae and a short letter of motivation. For applicants wishing to participate in the practical sessions, we request a more complete letter indicating how your research will benefit from DNA metabarcoding and what you are hoping to learn from this school. As part of the course, each participant in the practical portion will give a flash talk (5 minutes) about your research and how it is related to DNA metabarcoding.
