FISH Course

The use of rRNA-targeted Fluorescence in situ Hybridisation (FISH) is now widely accepted as the least biased method for identifying and enumerating populations of microorganisms within a large variety of environmental samples

Including sludge, seawater, freshwater, intestinal/skin flora, plant root/leaf epiphytes, rumen, etc.

ACWEB has had more than 15 years of developing the method of FISH for a number of different sample types and challenges. There is no sample that we can’t try FISH on.

2. How often do they run?

The FISH Course is run regularly, in the Summer or Easter University holidays. However, if there is enough interest from participants an extra course can be organised.

Contact the Course Coordinator, Dr Anjani Weerasekara to find out more.
