Apply Now for the Free AQUAEXCEL2020 Training Course: “Introductory Bioinformatic Course to Sequencing Data Processing”


Applications are now being accepted for the AQUAEXCEL2020 training course entitled “Introductory Bioinformatic Course to Sequencing Data Processing”.  This is a free face-to-face training course provided by the Institute of Aquaculture, University of Stirling (Scotland, UK) in collaboration with INRA (France).  The course will take place at UoS, Stirling (Scotland) between 26-30 August 2019.

AQUAEXCEL2020 aims to bring together, integrate, and open up highly diverse key national and regional aquaculture Research Infrastructures in Europe to all European researchers, from both academia and industry, ensuring their optimal use and joint development.  AQUAEXCEL2020 will organise nine pioneering technical training courses in total, focusing on different aspects of aquaculture experimentation. These courses present a valuable opportunity for researchers and technicians in this field to further their experience.

This course is designed primarily for students and lab researchers who want to be introduced to bioinformatics concepts and analysis.  This course is not an advanced course for bioinformatists, but rather a starter course for researchers that want to have a better understanding of their data, gain more insights or to plan experiments better and maximise the analytics output.

Required competence level: basic knowledge of molecular biological methods.


To apply, please send the following documents to, with the subject line: AQUAEXCEL2020/TrainingCourse_Bioinformatics_UoS


The application deadline is 21 June 2019
