PRESENTATION by Dr Albert Chakona:

Bridging knowledge: East meets West

Abstract: In this talk I will share my experiences during a recent visit to Indonesia where I attended a ten-day UNESCO funded training workshop on single DNA barcoding, metabarcoding and eDNA. The workshop included lectures, fieldwork and labwork facilitated by instructors from Asia, Europe and Africa. The participants came from nine countries: Malaysia, Singapore, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Pakistan, Japan, Philippines and Indonesia.

Apart from the rich academic experience, networking and potential for establishing long-term collaborations, the workshop provided unique opportunities to gain valuable insights on different cultures. And I also survived a volcanic eruption!
