BIO-617 / 1 credit
Teacher: Gönczy Pierre
Remark: 3-day Block course, every year in January. To register, contact EDMS Administration
Give students a feel for some of the approaches pursued to understand mechanisms underlying cell division processes, primarily in C. elegans embryos but also in other systems, including human cells in culture.
Students will conduct experiments (time-lapse microscopy, indirect immunofluorescence microscopy, ...) that should allow them to formulate a reasonable hypothesis about the function of a mystery gene that will be assigned to them.
Please note that you are not allowed to inscribe in your own group!
Note that 3 practical courses are mandatory for all EDMS students and that they have the priority; each course has between 2 to 4 possible slots.
Therefore, please do not register by yourself to this course, this will be done by the EDMS program administrator!
Cell division, C. elegans, human cells, developmental biology, genetics, functional genomics.
