Kurs: Phylogenetics, phylogenomics, citizen science and entrepreneurship (BIG 4 Fall Workshop 2016)

Publicerat av Johan Nylander --

BIG 4 Fall Workshop 2016

Phylogenetics, Phylogenomics, Citizen science and Entrepreneurship

Dates: Mon Oct 10 – Tue Oct 18, 2016

Venue: Tovetorp research station (http://www.zoologi.su.se/tovetorp/)

Description

The BIG4 fall workshop 2016 has two main themes. One theme is focused on phylogenetics, phylogenomics and bioinformatics, and is intended to provide students with an introduction to these topics, focused on skills that will be useful in their PhD research projects. There will be a mixture of lectures and practicals; students are encouraged to bring their own datasets and analysis problems. The other theme is citizen science and entrepreneurship, and this part of the course will provide broad introductions, exercises, and inspiration for students interested in pursuing these subjects as part of their current or future activities.

The workshop is primarily aimed at BIG 4 students but (except for the Friday morning session) is open to outside participants as well. We have room for up to 10 additional outside participants on a first come first served basis. Outside participants may choose to come for only part of the course, if they wish.

Course registration and fee

Register for the course no later than September 28 using the form at this web site: http://bit.ly/2c6i6v0. Outside student participation will be confirmed on September 29. If you cancel past that date, we may very well have to charge you the course fee anyway.

There will be a fee for course, accommodation and food. We expect the total cost to be approximately 2,000 SEK/day for students participating for part of the course, and approximately 15,000 SEK in total for those students taking the entire workshop. Students will receive an invoice after the course is finished.

Systematikdagarna 2016 in Uppsala: Registration open!

Publicerat av Anja Rautenberg --

Draft programme for Systematikdagarna 21-22 November in Uppsala is now published at http://systematikforeningen.se/verksamhet/systematikdagarna/systematikdagarna-2016/. Registration is also open. Welcome!

For those who want to register to Systematikdagarna and already have an account on systematikforeningen.se: please log in before starting registration.

For those who do not have an account on systematikforeningen.se: you can register for Systematikdagarna without a user account. If you want to create a user account on systematikforeningen.se, you might experience some problems (unfortunately the form doesn’t tell you why your account can’t be created. Common errors include: e-mail address already associated with an account, you forgot one of the mandatory fields, password too short or you didn’t get the last question right. When you have succeeded with your account creation, instead of a “Welcome to Systematikföreningen” e-mail, you might get a “Password changed” confirmation e-mail). Sorry about that, will try to fix it.

Please report any other web site errors to webmaster—snabela—systematikforeningen.se
