by Emil Fridolfsson and Fredrik Svensson
In the beginning of November members of the group (Fredrik and Emil) attended a workshop on the tool Plankton Toolbox, hosted by SMHI in Gothenburg.
The Plankton Toolbox is a free tool for working with phyto- and zooplankton data, all the way from counting samples to handling large datasets. The software is useful for working with datasets originating from quantitative and qualitative analyses of phytoplankton and zooplankton.
Attendants in the workshop came from many different backgrounds, fields of interest as well as countries, enabling exchange of ideas and knowledge across research fields.
In the beginning of 2016, Fredrik and Emil will share their learning outcomes with the rest of the group in one of the Plankton seminars.
