This nine-day “Bootcamp” style course will cover fundamental concepts and practical approaches in understanding cellular functions. The focus is to develop a breadth of knowledge in quantitative techniques to allow bioscience researchers to pursue further depth in their respective research work.
Major topics include: gene editing, cellular structure and processes, statistics, bio-imaging, image analysis, modelling, and quantitative methods in biology. There will be extensive tutorials in using Matlab, complemented by hands-on microscopy and wet-lab sessions. Students will work as part of a team to tackle problems and to develop a report on an open area of modern bioscience research.
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 4-MC.
Dates: 4 August to 12 August 2017
Where: CREATE Theatrette, Level 2, 1 CREATE Way, CREATE Tower, NUS
Program Schedule and Registration
There are two types of registration:
- Open Registration
- Graded module Registration (strictly for NUS graduate students who would like to read MB5104 as graded module, leading to 4-MC).
|• NUS graduate students who would like to attend as a non-graded module (i.e., as a listener)
• Non-NUS graduate students
• Individuals who would like to know more about Mechanobiology
Note: This group of registrants will attend the open lectures only.
