Practical course on fish transgenesis – applications closed!

17. 10. 2014 Education Event Lecture

Institute of Molecular Genetics and Czech Centre for Phenogenomics would like to invite you for the specialised training course on fish transgenesis.

The course will take place at IMG Prague from November 12 to November 14, 2014.

The participants will get practical hands-on training on the following subjects:

  • Basic fish husbandry (zebrafish, medakafish)
  • Transgenesis in fish using meganuclease and transposons
  • Live imaging of reporter genes (EGFP, mCherry) in transgenic fish

In addition, theoretical lectures covering the topics of the course will be delivered. The language of the course will be both Czech and English. Each participant will be provided with printed material describing techniques practiced in the course.

Due to the experimental nature of the course, the total number of participants is limited. Students (both graduate and undergraduate), postdocs and other scientist are welcome to apply. The participant has to be a student of any Czech university (except universities from Prague) or has to be employed in any Czech research institution (that meets criteria of the law 130/2002 Sb.) outside Prague. The applicant can be of a foreign origin, however, must conform to the above criteria.

There is no fee associated with the course. The cost of accommodation and travel of all selected participants will be covered by ECOP CZ.1.07/2.3.00/30.0027 “Founding the Centre of Transgenic Technologies”.

Thank you for your interest and your applications. The course is full now and applications are closed.
