Introduction :


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.

Date : 7th to 16th of october 2013

  • Diversity of photosynthetic eukaryotes, plankton culture (D. Vaulot)
  • Carbon cycle, role of phytoplankton communities, DOC dynamics (E. Rochelle-Newall)
  • The ecology and oceanography of harmful algal blooms, with a focus on dinoflagellates.  (L. Ngoc Nyuyen).
  • Spatio-temporal variability of phytoplankton in aquatic systems (T. Chu Van)
  • Microalgae, applications, Biotechnology ()
  • Statistical treatments of data (M. Choisy)
Heterotrophic microbes and viruses
  • Bacterial ecology, diversity and ecological role (T. Bouvier)
  • Viral ecology, abundance, life strategies and functional roles (Y. Bettarel)
  • DNA-Microarray, its applications to microbial ecology (or microbial system). (B. Ngoc Van).
  • Application of genetic metabarcoding to microbes (P. Galand)

Who can apply ?
Graduate (Master, PhD) students, post-doctoral fellow and young post-graduate researchers from SE Asian countries with an interest in Aquatic Microbial Ecology can apply. The total number of participants will be around 30. Each participant will be requested to give a 10 min presentation (+ 5 min discussion) about her/his current research at the beginning of the workshop. Participants will have to stay for the whole duration of the course.
