AQUAGAMETE Training schools

AQUAGAMETE Training schools | Aqua-tnet |

The AQUAGAMETE COST Action ( is pleased to announce the 2nd AQUAGAMETETraining School.
The2nd AQUAGAMETE Training School is aimed towards young researchers (PhD students, young post-docs and MSc students) as well as representatives from industry.


The course will be focused on Molecular basis of fish gamete quality integrating different aspects and covering topics such as:

- Transcriptomic analysis of gamete quality, including practical microarray analysis of gamete quality
- Gamete quality assessment including practical cytometry analysis and embryonic outcome

- Scientific conferences on genomics & toxicogenomics, epigenetics, overview of gamete quality issues in fish and shellfish

The 2nd AQUAGAMETE Training School will highlight the most recent developments in each topic, promoting a strong interaction between experienced trainers working on different aspects of Molecular basis of fish gamete quality and trainees.


The course will take place between 23rd – 27th June 2014 at the INRA Fish Physiology and Genomics laboratory (Rennes, France, ;) facilities and counts with the collaboration of IFREMER and University of Lorraine.


The number of participants will be restricted to 16 persons (priority will be given to students and early stage researchers with no experience in Genomics and with a professional project related to gamete quality). Financial support from the AQUAGAMETE COST Action (for travelling, meals, and accommodation, up to 800 euros) will be available for trainees.

AQUAEXCEL PROJECT: Short Training Courses

AQUAEXCEL PROJECT: Short Training Courses | Aqua-tnet |

AQUAEXCEL organises 4 new pioneering technical Training Courses that focus on different aspects of aquaculture experimentation. These Training Courses are the only ones of their kind, putting emerging aquaculture infrastructure centres of excellence at the forefront.


This is a unique chance for researchers and technicians in this field as course attendance is free, thanks to EC FP7 funding. Participants are expected to pay their own travel, subsistence and accommodation.

Remaining courses are:

Course 2: Contribution of Genomic Approaches to the Development of Sustainable Aquaculture for Temperate and Mediterranean Fish

Course 3: The Application of Chromosome Set Manipulations and the Importance of Gamete Collection and Management in Aquaculture

Course 4: Efficient Utilisation of New Monitoring and Control Systems in Fish Experiments.

John Bostock's insight:

These are high quality one-off specialist courses that will be particularly interesting to early career aquaculture researchers
