Molecular approaches offer exciting possibilities to study trophic interactions. Within the last decade considerable progress has been made in DNA-based methodology to unravel who eats what including predator-prey, host-parasitoid and herbivore-plant interactions across ecosystems. This course provides a hands-on introduction to molecular trophic ecology and offers the opportunity to discuss how to best apply these methods to your own research project.

This course will be taught in English.


Target Group

International undergraduate and graduate students as well as postdoctoral researchers and technicians who wish to apply DNA-based methods to study trophic interactions.

A maximum of 16 participants will be allowed for the course and a first come, first served basis applies.
