Applications of Flow Cytometry (FCM) to Macroalgal Biology
An European Workshop
Date: 6 - 8 October, 1997
Workshop site: CESPU
Language: English spoken
Workshop fee: 40 000 Escudos (includes tuition, workshop notes and
beverages at breaks).
35 000 Escudos for members of APAA and SIC
Group size: 40 participants
This workshop is organized by Olga M. Lage (Departamento de Botanica da
Faculdade de Ciencias da Universidade do Porto and IBMC), Filipe
(Cooperativa de Ensino Superior e Politecnico Universitario) and
Pinto (Departamento de Botanica da Faculdade de Ciencias da
do Porto) with the collaboration of the Associacao Portuguesa de Algologia
The workshop is sponsored by several institutions and companies,
namely through the placement of equipment.
Aim: This Workshop is intended: 1) to familiarize macroalgae phycologists
with both theoretical and practical applications of Flow Cytometry and 2)
to promote an open discussion on how FCM applications may be useful to
Participant: This workshop is designed for young or senior macroalgae
experts who wish to enlarge or update their theoretical and practical
knowledge on FCM and have the possibility, in their laboratories, to use
this technique. Other interested persons are also invited to attend.
