Registration is open.

The Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Coimbra (FCTUC) will host another Plant Biotechnology Summer Course, organized by CiB—Biotechnology Information Center, between July 8th and 11th. Registration is open.

The Plant Biotechnology Summer Course, which will take place in the Auditorium of the Department of Life Sciences, aims to disseminate biotechnology, its different techniques and applications. This third edition is dedicated to forests. Forests are important carbon sinks and, are essential in many human activities and are subject to increasingly plausible diseases that must be combated. Therefore, biotechnology techniques, including New Genomic Techniques, are increasingly important.

This course is aimed at students, technicians, teachers, farmers, and official entities linked to agriculture and the environment.
