After the great success of the 1st International hands-on course on phage biotechnology in 2013, we are pleased to announce the 2nd edition of this course that will be held in Braga, Portugal from 15-19 June 2015. This 5 days training period will consist on both theoretical and practical lessons covering topics from isolation and production of phages to proteomics and genomics, genome annotation and phage display.
The course is directed to both PhD students and junior researchers who are starting in the phage field or to post-doctoral, senior researchers and industrial partners who want to improve their knowledge in the area.
