“Genetics and Imaging of Medaka and Zebrafish” will take place as an international practical course organized by NIBB and Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory (TLL, Singapore). In this course, participants will learn standard skills and up-to-date techniques using medaka and zebrafish, and exchange information regarding their use. Guest speakers will discuss these emerging topics and new fields of biology. Interaction among participants will facilitate further expansion of research networks.
Participants (maximum 16) will be selected from applicants who would like to join this course. Please send your application to the administration office of this course by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). We are looking forward to receiving your application.
