N.A.Pertzov White Sea Biological Station (WSBS MSU) invites undergraduate and graduate students studying zoology and ecology to participate in summer field school on Molecular Zoology, which will take place in September 5-19, 2010.

"THE WHITE SEA MOLECULAR ZOOLOGY SCHOOL" will provide a unique opportunity to get on-hand experience of wide array of molecular genetics methods and tools used in modern zoology. You are invited to spend two weeks in marvelous natural settings and friendly environment at small biological station located in pristine location called "Velikaya Salma" ("Great straight") of the Kandalaksha Bay of the White Sea exactly on the Polar Circle (66  34' N, 33  08' E). 

During two weeks you will be involved in organismal and ecological fieldwork, laboratory data collection, and analytical work. The course will emphasize the use of molecular tools to address phylogenetic, ecological and environmental questions.
