GENECO Courses & Workshops
GENECO courses are generally up to one week long and held at the Department of Biology at Lund University. The courses are free of charge to all GENECO students but are open to PhD students from any university subject to a course fee.
The curriculum offers both introductory and specialised courses, as well as hands-on laboratory (wet or computer) and theoretical courses.
GENECO will cover the course fee for their students on a number of other courses, such as the SciLife courses. Furthermore, we are willing to consider covering the fee for 10 extra course days at external courses that fall within the remit of genomic ecology or are relevant to the specific genetic techniques used by a student within their PhD project. GENECO courses, SciLife courses and the Workshop on Genomics at Cesky Krumlov do not count towards these 10 extra course days.
Please make enquiries about these courses directly to us: emily [dot] oconnor [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se or olof [dot] hellgren [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se.
We would also like to draw attention to the UPPMAX courses on Uppsala University's website. There you find details of many excellent training resources that can be useful for handling large datasets, as many genetic projects generate. Although these courses generally do not require funding to attend, we would like to highlight them as potentially useful resources for you as a GENECO student.

30 October - 4 November 2023, University of Gothenburg (2.5 ECTS)
Science communication and its role in society
20–24 November 2023, Lund University (3 ECTS)
This course will give knowledge and understanding of how effective science communication works and discuss the role of science in society. The course will be taught through seminars, discussion groups, self-directed learning, and project work. The course aims to provide skills to condense and convey key messages clearly, to define target audiences for different types of communication and to develop effective techniques to deliver and receive information through different channels.

SciLifeLab courses supported by GENECO
GENECO is willing to cover the fee for their students attending SciLife courses. For details of the courses see SciLife's website.
