Workshop December 2017

Characterisation of soil and groundwater microbiology : sampling, analytical methods, interpretation and applications for agriculture management

This workshop explored the principles and application of various techniques available for molecular microbiological analysis of microbial communities and their interactions in soil and groundwater. The focus was on understanding the fundamental basis for each technique and its potential value in different contexts, with emphasis on interpreting the microbial dynamics in agricultural systems. The course covered theoretical aspects, sample collection/processing and advanced data presentation/interpretation methods using laboratory demonstrations and state-of-the-art open source software.
