Course “Genomics/Metagenomics and NGS approaches for discovering new enzymes useful for industrial applications”

12 – 23 June 2022, Sfax, Tunisia

The ICGEB aims at strengthening the research capability of its Members through a comprehensive training programme and approach to promoting biotechnology internationally. The active participation of ICGEB Member States nationals in the ICGEB Meetings and Courses is therefore highly encouraged. For more information on the terms of participation and funding opportunities for this event please access the meeting website or contact the local organisers directly.

Deadline for receipt of applications:
28 February 2022

The proposed event tailors to a much less-endowed area of NGS-based genomics and metagenomics as an alternative approach to conventional microbial enzymes screening. It opts to apply the functional metagenomic strategy to discover new potential genes and enzymes for some industrial applications. It will allow sharing the knowledge in metagenomics, NGS technology and sequencing data analysis.


Metagenomic bank, Genomics and Metagenomics, Next generation sequencing, Sequence analysis and annotation, Functional annotation for enzyme discovering.


Researchers and students involved in the fields  of molecular microbiology and industrial enzymes as well as sequences determination (NGS) and analysis. It’s suitable for participants to have basic knowledge on Linux program. Poster sessions will be also organized.


Participants are expected to cover their own travel and living costs. A limited number of grants, covering accommodation (twin share) and local hospitality  for the duration of the event, are available to a selected number of ICGEB Member States nationals.
