BioCat has the PhD-student in focus, and we offer PhD-level courses related to biocatalysis. The courses are held by specialsts in the field at the partner universities here in Norway (UiT, UiS, NTNU, UiO, NMBU and UiB). BioCat also arranges an annual conference aimed at networking and development of essential skills needed to succeed as a researcher. For more information, see our become a member’ information page, or contact your local BioCat ambassador! For more information on research and transferable skills courses, see our PhD courses page. 

Our goal is to educate researchers with trandisciplinary training.  We aim to include elements from bioinformatics, molecular biology, organic chemistry, biotechnology, structural biology, systems biology, bioprocessing and computational modelling.
