EMBO Practical Course: Molecular Geobiology

26 August 2018 11:00 - 31 August 2018 14:00, Heidelberg, Germany


Introduction

Course Overview

Participants will be introduced to a collaborative environment and the course will facilitate interaction between researchers in multiple fields who would otherwise have a limited opportunity to exchange ideas. One of the core objectives will be knowledge translation and mobilisation.

The principal themes include methods in field geobiology, integrating geochemical and biological data, interpretation across scales, nucleic acid extraction from rock samples, differences in resolution between field and laboratory data sets, and the importance of geobiology to astrobiology and origin of life studies. Participants will have the opportunity to conduct field research at the Ries impact structure to put into practice lessons learned regarding geobiology field work. This field excursion is the first geobiological field trip to an impact structure and will be led by internationally renowned experts in impact cratering. Participants will come away with the ability to plan and conduct molecular biology research in rock-hosted microbial systems.

Audience

This course is directed towards early career researchers, graduate students or postdoctoral researchers interested in geobiology. A background any of the following fields is essential - molecular biology, microbiology, geobiology, geochemistry, mineralogy or microbial ecology.
