Applications of Molecular Biology in Fisheries and Aquaculture

Τρίτη 12 Μαρ 2024

The Center for Education and Lifelong Learning (KEDIVIM) of the Agricultural University of Athens (AUA) welcomes you to the educational program entitled «Applications of Molecular Biology in Fisheries and Aquaculture», with a total occupational duration of 50 hours.

The program will be conducted in the Laboratory of Applied Hydrobiology of the Department of Animal Science at the Agricultural University of Athens and will be implemented using a blended learning approach, distance learning (Synchronous Education) through the CCELL /AUA E-class platform and in-person (participants' physical presence is required).

Scientific Manager of the program is Mr. Emmanouil Malandrakis Assistant Professor of the Department of Animal Science of the Agricultural University of Athens


The current Training Program is implemented within the framework of the action: "External services implementation" of the EU-CONEXUS-RESEARCH FOR SOCIETY (EU-CONEXUS-RFS) program of the European Commission (HORIZON 2020), with the main objective of combining access in advanced research infrastructures and processes, training in how to use them, learning new skills and sharing best practices (job shadowing).

Program necessity

Training in basic molecular biology techniques in fisheries and aquaculture is vital for researchers and industry professionals to improve understanding of fish genetics, breeding and breeding programs, study disease resistance and develop sustainable fishing and aquaculture practices. In addition, molecular biology tools are used to detect adulteration in the fish supply chain. Hands-on experience in these techniques enable researchers and practitioners to contribute to fisheries management, consumer fraud protection, selective breeding, disease control, and sustainable aquaculture practices.
