Technical workshop: "Biobanking for sustainable management of farm animal resources (FAnGR): Novel approaches in genomics, reproductive technologies and economics", Beni Mellal, Morocco, 21 - 24 January 2020
The aim was to provide an update on the role of biobanking for a sustainable management of farm animal genetic resources (FAnGR) with a focus on the use of novel methods in genomics, reproduction, economics and the possibility to carry out practical cases of interest to participants.
The course was attended by 20 trainees, 13 from Morocco, 4 from Tunisia, 2 from Nigeria and 1 from Soudan. +info
Technical workshop: "La Genómica y su Aplicación en la Conservación y Caracterización de los Recursos Zoogenéticos” , Bogotá, Colombia, 13-17 January 2020
This course aimed to provide advanced training on the use of genomic data for the characterization of genetic diversity and understand association between genome diversity and phenotype. A team of international lecturers involved in the IMAGE project, developed a challenging program that included all relevant topics, needed to understand and make best use of genetic diversity.
The course was organized by IMAGE partner, AGROSAVIA in Colombia, 13-17 January 2020. The course was entitled “Genomics and its application to conservation and characterization of animal genetic resources“, and it was attended by 40 trainees coming from different Universities and Research Institutions in Colombia and Argentina. This course was also offered in live streaming mode and allowed the attendance of further 6 trainees from Argentina, Cuba and Spain. +info

Post-graduate course: "Characterization, management and exploitation of genomic diversity of animals", Wageningen, Netherlands, 15-19 October 2018
This course aimed at developing capacity building in innovative analysis methods for genomic data with a strong focus on genomic diversity. The target audience consisted in PhD candidates at least in their 2nd year, post-docs and researchers interested in genomic diversity. Applicants were asked to submit an abstract describing their own. During the course, a total 28 participants from different countries (23 EU, 5 non EU) were to develop a project applying the newly acquired knowledge.
