Workshop: "-omics technologies for marine models" 30 Nov
This event will be held at SAMS on 30 November during the annual science meeting of MASTS (29 Nov - 1 Dec 2010). A special SOFI / NERC session on Nov 30 PM will follow a special MASTS session on Genomics scheduled on Nov 30 AM, which will be opened to SOFI delegates. MASTS delegates are automatically registered for and can freely attend the NERC/ SOFI workshop. The main objectives of this event are to build a community around the potential of "-omics technologies" to improve the biological monitoring of marine ecosystems. It will span across research councils to explore current strengths in -omics and systems biology in the marine biology sector, foster cross-council thinking and develop joint actions as appropriate, as well as looking at the international landscape. The event is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council.
