Training in DNA-based technologies

Sunday, 15. May 2016 to Wednesday, 25. May 2016

Assistant professor Ivan Šoštarić (BIODIV) finished advanced training in DNA-based technologies. The training took place at the Department of Seed Science and Technology, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia, from 15-25 May, 2016, under the supervision of Prof. Zlatko Šatović. The aim of the training was to further develop skills in a range of DNA marker techniques, such as SSR (simple sequence repeats) method. During his visit to Faculty of Agriculture, University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia he improved his laboratory skills and learned how to set PCR reaction for SSR markers that will be included in activities of BIODIV laboratory established through AREA project. Also during his state in Croatia he has established good cooperation with colleagues from different countries for which he hopes will result in the future collaboration.
