27 JUL-6 AUG. 2015 MBI Bootcamp on Mechanobiology: An Integrative Approach to Understand Cell Functions. REGISTRATION OPEN



This 2-week “bootcamp” style course will introduce researchers from biology or physical science backgrounds to key fundamental concepts and practical approaches in understanding cellular functions. The focus is to develop a breadth of knowledge that allows bio-science researchers to pursue further depth in their respective research work.

Major topics include the central dogma of molecular biology, gene cloning and editing, microscopy and bioimaging, image analysis and quantitative methods in biology and the choice and limitations of model organisms.

The Bootcamp lectures are open to all interested graduate students and post-docs. For graduate students the lectures will be reinforced in thematic-based practicals, leading to 2-MC.
