Description

This course is aimed at Technicians and Scientists interested in transgenic animals or developmental biology using model organisms like fish, frog or other non-mammalian embryos that have basic experience with eukaryotic cells and microscopy.

About 40% of the course program covers lectures and tutorials on microinjection and corresponding microscopy techniques by experts in the field. The rest of the time will focus on hands on practical work organised in small groups. These practical will address the following topics: sample preparation for microinjection, microinjection into Medaka and/or Zebrafish, microinjection into Hydra, and experiment analysis at the stereomicroscope.

Participants may bring along their own samples as they will have the possibility to image them and discuss results with the course teachers.
