PhycoClub is an informal forum for the discussion of science related to microalgae, cyanobacteria and seaweeds.

The webinar series is primarily aimed at Early Career Researchers.

Algae-UK has been working with some ECR-led algae groups – Microalgae Recombinants, UKCyanoNet and Euglena International Network – to run a fortnightly “coffee break” style webinar series on Fridays at 10:30 BST.  The aim is for these to be a supportive environment for ECR to present their work, hear about research being undertaken in other groups and to have the chance to connect with others in the algae community to share challenges, find collaborators and potential career opportunities.

Please see below dates and details of upcoming sessions.

16th July at 10:30 BST. Amanda Hopes (UEA) will be talking about CRISPR/Cas in diatoms and the OmicronCr service being developed in the Mock lab. The link for this session is:
