Courses and workshops

We offers a broad range of courses that encompass topics from genomics to phenomics.

The Graduate Research School in Integrative Biology (IBIO) courses are held at the biology and chemistry departments at Lund University and are generally between one to four days in length. The Life Sciences program courses at the Faculty of Science are included in our course program in addition to several of the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS) courses.

The courses vary according to the developments in the field. Examples of potential courses include:

  • Introduction to AI
  • Proteins and proteomics: protein structure prediction
  • Digital image analysis for scientific applications
  • Analyses of environmental DNA (eDNA)
  • Estimating signs of selection in genes and genomes
  • Phylogenetic comparative analysis
  • Human evolutionary genetics and paleogenetics
  • Protein crystallography
  • Single particle cryoEM
  • Protein Factories
  • Live cell imaging

All our courses are free of charge for students enrolled in the Graduate Research School of Integrative Biology and are eligible for university credits. Further course information will soon be found in our learning management system Canvas.

We will cover the course fee for enrolled students on several relevant external courses, such as the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS) courses, subject to request and availability. Please contact us directly with questions about the potential for the research school to cover the fees for these courses (bengt [dot] hansson [at] biol [dot] lu [dot] se).

Upcoming Postgraduate Courses in the Life Sciences

There is an opportunity for our students to attend several excellent methodological courses in the Autumn of 2024, with the deadline for applications on the 1st of June. Examples of these courses include Bioanalytical HPLC, DNA amplification technology, protein mass spectroscopy and GC-MS analysis of volatiles, to name but a few! For full details of these courses and the application process go to the Life Sciences courses website.

Science communication and its role in society

18-22 November 2024, Lund University (3 ECTS)

This course gives knowledge and understanding how effective science communication works and discusses the role of science in society. Through seminars, discussion groups, self-directed learning and project work, the course provides skills to condense and convey key messages clearly, to define target audiences for different types of communication and develops effective techniques to deliver and receive information through different channels. There will be preparatory tasks the week before the course begins and you will work full days during the course period.
