Participants in the international practical course “Genome Editing and Imaging of Fish and Amphibians” will learn standard biological research skills and up-to-date techniques using medaka, Xenopus and iberian ribbed newt. Guest speakers will talk about emerging research topics using these organisms and related topics to genome editing and imaging. Participants will discuss and exchange information regarding their use with lecturers and seminar speakers. Furthermore, it is hoped that interaction among participants will create expanded research networks.
We are now calling for course applications from young researchers and graduate students who are interested. A maximum of 16 applicants will be chosen to participate in this course. Please send your application to the course administration office by email (firstname.lastname@example.org
). We look forward to receiving your application.
