The lectures also place the fingerprinting approaches among other molecular techniques used in microbial biodiversity research.

The training course consists of lectures in the morning and either a hands-on demonstration in the laboratory or eventually student reports in the afternoon.
Lectures will cover fingerprinting techniques (T-RFLP, ARISA, DGGE, SSCP, PFGE and related techniques). A hands-on demonstration will introduce into T-RFLP (max. 12 participants). Eventually we will organize for advanced students afternoon sessions where they can present their study object.
