ASIAME 2013 :
FIRST SOUTH EAST ASIA WORKSHOP IN AQUATIC MICROBIAL ECOLOGY
Institute of Oceanography (IO), Nha Trang, Viet Nam
7 - 16 October 2013
Aquatic Microbial Ecology is a key discipline that has undergone tremendous evolution in the last two decades. Mastering concepts and methods, especially those based on molecular biology approaches, is critical for successful management of coastal and marine areas, particularly in fields such as red tide control, biogeochemical cycles, aquaculture, and marine biotechnology. Understanding microbial diversity, their roles, interactions and capacities for adaptation are keys to anticipating the effects of use of aquatic systems.
ASIAME aims to bring together scientists, post-graduates, and graduate students in order to exchange the most advanced knowledge and methods in aquatic microbiology through scientific lectures and practical training.
