BENTACS - BENthos TAxonomy CourseS


Application form


Pectinaria koreni prostomio

                Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn Naples

Italy, 26-30 October 2020




The Marine Organism Taxonomy (MOTax) core facility has launched a series of International Summer Schools (BENTACS - BENthos TAxonomy CourseS) focused on the taxonomy of the main groups of zoo-benthos from soft-bottom communities in the Mediterranean Sea. The courses will target in particular researchers and technicians from scientific institutions and from national/regional environmental agencies interested in the study of benthos biodiversity and ecology. A combination of lectures and microscope sessions will provide participants with a general theoretical framework and practical experience.

The 1st MOTax course will provide an advanced training on the taxonomy and identification of Polychaetes. It will be held at the Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn in Naples on 26-30 October 2020. The course will be focused on specific families of the largest class of annelids selected based on their ecological relevance, including species for which the taxonomic identification is particularly challenging.

Participants will be guided by expert taxonomists into the examination of preserved collections from different Mediterranean regions, as well as into the identification of their own samples. The course will offer an opportunity to discuss new challenges and perspectives into the fields of Polychaetes taxonomy and ecology.

Theoretical lessons

- ecological role of Polychaetes

- general aspects of Polychaete biodiversity, species complexes, cryptic diversity

- alien species

Pratictal lessons

- criteria for species identification in the following families:

Sabellidae, Sabellaridae, Serpulidae, Aphroditoidea, Eunicidae, Lumbrineridae, Onuphidae, Capitellidae, Magelonidae, Paraonidae, Spionidae, Cirratulidae, Glyceridae, Nepthydae e Terebellidae

- alien species

La Stazione Zoologica inaugura un ciclo di incontri per celebrare la figura di eminenti studiosi e naturalisti che hanno contribuito al prestigio dell'Istituzione napoletana. Il 4 dicembre 2019,  in occasione del 50esimo anniversario della fondazione dell'Associazione Campana Insegnanti di Scienze Naturali, si ricorda la figura di Artuto Palombi che ne fu promotore e che lavorò alla Stazione per oltre 30 anni lasciando una collezione di preparati microscopici e un fondo di estratti presentato al pubblico per la prima volta.

Immagine SZNThe workshop Genomic for a Blue Economy aims at identifying the state-of-the-art of methods, potential challenges, and future directions in the characterization of marine natural compounds and their applications as biotechnological and pharmaceutical products. The huge biodiversity hosted in the oceans stimulate the research for bioactive molecules from marine bioresources for applications in the field of biotechnology.

To exploit these promising biological resources and avoiding impoverishing marine resources, new strategies in the pipeline and a new cohort of cross disciplinary trained scientists are needed.

Systems biology approaches, such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics, are now being adapted to update natural product discovery platforms.

The two days workshop is organized in 4 sessions:

Session 1 - Omics technologies for drug discovery

Session 2 - Innovative OSMAC approach to improve marine secondary metabolism

Session 3 - Synthetic biology and pathways reconstruction

Session 4 - Panel discussion: Genome mining for drug discovery: state of the art and future paths

Have a look at the scheduled programme through the link: https://www.gbe-workshop.com/programme
