MYCO-GLOBE Workshop Training Course
A one-week workshop-training course on “Detection techniques for mycotoxins and toxigenic fungi in the food chain" will be held at ISPA-CNR in Bari, Italy, the week after the MYCO-GLOBE Conference (2-6 October 2006).
The goal of this course will be to show and teach traditional methods and new molecular and immunological technological systems for rapid, robust and user friendly identification of mycotoxin and toxigenic fungi in the food chain.
Participation will be limited to 10 students/young researchers from developing countries, fully supported by the MYCO-GLOBE SSA, and 10 additional participants (paying a fee) from other countries.
Lectures- overview of major methods for mycotoxins/toxigenic fungi detection
Laboratory chemical analysis of major mycotoxins (aflatoxins, ochratoxin A, fumonisins, trichothecenes)
Laboratory strain identification and molecular characterization of major toxigenic species of Aspergillus, Penicillium and Fusarium
