Important Information

Laboratory supervisors (University of Alicante): Borja Aldeguer, Leticia Asensio, Mónica Lluesma, Loles Ramos and Cristina López
*LA: Laboratory assistants
** Simultaneous activities, in small groups
All the activities will take place in the Laboratory Edificio de Ciencias IV (SIGUA: 0004PB0018), except the Microscopy sessions (in the Servicios Técnicos de Investigación), the Metagenomic session (CI/INF2, SIGUA: 0010PB020), and the course presentation, general discussion and lectures (Sala de Juntas de la Facultad de Ciencias, SIGUA: 0007P1005). Before the microscopy sessions students will attend a short lecture in classroom 5 (SIGUA: 007PB076)

This course has received funding from the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness through grant BIO2015-71815-REDT and the European Commission through grants GA685474 "Metafluidics" and GA 635595 "Carbazymes"
