Hackathon on marine invertebrates

When: Sunday June 16, 2019, 9 am – open end.

Where: NTNU University Museum, Trondheim.

Cost: NOK 150 (covers lunch).

The hackathon on marine invertebrates aims to gather DNA barcoders and taxonomic specialists actively engaged in DNA barcoding to undertake a comprehensive revision and annotation of the quality and congruence of reference DNA barcode records of the most prominent groups of marine invertebrates in BOLD. Moderators for the workshop will be Filipe Costa and Adriana Radulovici.

Contacts and more details will be provided as soon as available.


Workshop: Analyzing urban biodiversity data using mBrave

When; Sunday June 16, 2019, 9 am – open end.

Where: NTNU University Museum, Trondheim.

Cost: NOK 1000 (covers lunch and analytical costs).

Is it possible to do a reasonable biodiversity assessment of urban aquatic life within a couple of weeks? – And what will the quality of the data be like? Participants at the workshop will be analyzing paired-end reads from an Illumina MiniSeq and/or MiSeq instrument. The data will bee generated just days before the workshop through an extensive sampling of aquatic eDNA in and around the city of Trondheim. The major goal of the workshop will be to provide training in the analysis of raw data in mBrave, and to produce results that are publishable in a peer-reviewed journal. Active participants of the workshop will be co-authors of the publication. Teachers will be Sujeevan Ratnasingham, Megan Milton, Tyler Elliot and Markus Majaneva. Maximum number of participants: 25.
