Workshop: Metabarcoding for research and environmental monitoring

Welcome to a workshop on barcoding at at Ultuna in Uppsala. We want to gather researchers and stakeholders, interested in molecular identification of species and communities, in order to meet and exchange experience between different subject areas.

Registration

Register by sending an e-mail to Åke Olson including your name, affiliation and if you wish to have vegetarian food, or have any kind of allergies or dietary restrictions.
