We announce the NIBB International Practical Course on 2nd Developmental
Genetics of Zebrafish and Medaka.
NIBB International Practical Course
2nd Developmental Genetics of Zebrafish and Medaka
Date: March 3rd -12th 2008
Location: National Institute for Basic Biology, Okazaki, Japan
Zebrafish and medaka are excellent vertebrate models for genetic study.
Thanks to transgenic technique and embryonic manipulation, these animals are
also useful for precise analysis of many events during vertebrate
development. The course will cover basic technologies, including gene
knockdown by injecting anitisense morpholino-oligo, as well as a number of
advanced techniques such as BAC homologous recombination mediated
transgenesis, genomic/bioinformatic techniques, and cell tracking using
photoconvertible fluorescent proteins. A guest lecturer will discuss
emerging topics in the zebrafish and medaka fields. Informal interaction
between students and course faculty is encouraged.
This is the second international practical course supported by the National
Institute for Basic Biology (NIBB) in Japan and is mainly designed for young
scientists and those wanting to study in a new field. Travel and
accommodation support is available to participants from all countries.
Application deadline is November 30th$B!$(B 2007.
