The aim of the course is to introduce new IMRPS students to core facilities and animal model systems available at the Max Planck Institute, and to bring them to a comparable knowledge level. The two weeks course covers the following areas:
- Animal models - mouse, zebrafish and Drosophila
- Transgenic animals
- Microscopy and imaging
- Cell sorting and FACS data analysis
- Mass spectrometry with data analysis
- Deep-Sequencing and Bioinformatics
The course is offered in September and April, when the new students join the program.
