WS 2 - Remote access & culture techniques

WS 2: remote access & culture techniques workshop (OOB): 11-14 October, 2010 at the Observatoire Océanologique in Banyuls, FR.

This workshop is primarily aimed at persons technically involved in the following topics:

·         Provision of multicellular organisms

·         Culture of marine protists and cell lines

·         Remote access to biological marine resources

As you will see in the program, each aspect will be addressed in specific round tables and a very short talk will introduce each topic in order to give the maximum space to discussion.

Please inform your lab colleagues if you think they could be interested to attend this workshop.

Costs: 2 ASSEMBLE participants per site will pay for travel only (from their own ASSEMBLE account), additional ASSEMBLE participants and non-ASSEMBLE participants pay also for meals and accommodation.

Registration: send email to before September 19, (even if you are already mentioned in the attached program).
