For this fourth annual training course in Environmental Genomics and Metabolomics, the curriculum was expanded to highlight a multi-omics (system biology) approach to research in environmental sciences. It trained PhD students and early career postdoctoral scientists to investigate how gene function and metabolism are influenced by environmental conditions while accounting for variation that exists within and among natural populations.
The course provided a significant introduction and much hands-on training experience so that participants could initiate their own environmental omics study and network with others in the field to launch Environmental Scientist careers in academia and industry. Case studies using multi-omics data sets collected at the University of Birmingham were provided so that students could gain practical experience of analysing and integrating multi-omics data.
Further details of the programme and how to apply were available on the University of Birmingham website - external link.
A limited number of bursaries were available for NERC funded PhD students, post-doctoral research associates and early-career scientists covering the cost of the course registration fee, accommodation and travel expenses up to £100.
The closing date to apply for a NERC-funded bursary for the course was 5 February 2017.
