The first summer school ASIAME "South East Asia Workshop in Aquatic Microbial Ecology," will be held in Nha Trang, Vietnam at the Institute of Oceanography (IO) between October 7 and 16, 2013. Aquatic Microbial Ecology has undergone tremendous evolution in the last two decades. Mastering concepts and methods, especially those based on molecular biology approaches, is critical for successful management of coastal and marine areas, particularly in fields such as red tide control, biogeochemical cycles, aquaculture, and marine biotechnology. Understanding microbial diversity, their roles, interactions and capacities for adaptation are keys to anticipating the effects of use of aquatic systems. ASIAME aims is to bring together scientists, post-graduates, and graduate students in order to exchange the most advanced knowledge and methods in aquatic microbiology through scientific lectures and practical training. Applicants form South East Asian countries will be selected according to their academic needs and potential for achievement reflected in their application proposal. Accommodation and travel costs will be covered by ASIAME for selected applicants.
