Central European Summer Course on Mycology (CESC) 2018
When and where: July 6-11 in Szeged, Hungary
Registration deadline: 15th May
The course addresses both the fundamental principles and techniques of molecular biology, genetics, genomics and diagnostics of pathogenic fungal species. Students gain an in-depth knowledge of pathogenic mechanisms, molecular genetics, and the biochemistry of important virulence factors. Other topics include phylogenomics as a new way to discover disease mechanisms, host adaptation mechanisms of pathogenic fungi, epidemiology, molecular typing, analysis of extracellular elements of pathogenic fungal species and much more. Each lecture directly relates molecular biology to current laboratory techniques.
All participants are required to submit an abstract of their research activity. Among the submitted summaries several will be selected for an oral presentation as part of the ‘Student’s talk’ session.
CESC/FEMS fellowships will be available covering the registration fee. To apply for a Grant, along with your abstract, please send us a Curriculum Vitae and a Motivation letter via our Registration system.
