GEOBIOLOGY 2018
An International Training Course in a Rapidly Evolving Field

 

Now entering its 15th year, the International Geobiology Course is an intense, multidisciplinary summer course exploring the coevolution of the Earth and it's biosphere, with an emphasis on how microbial processes affect the environment and leave imprints on the rock record. Participants get hands-on experience in cutting-edge geobiological techniques, learn from a broad team of eminent scientists in the field, and work in research groups to solve relevant questions.
