Cours générique

1st advanced optogenetic course - 2014

This course will present the requirement for non invasive optical methods and the development of multi-photon microscopy to control and record biomolecules activity. The course will address how optogenetic tools can be used to record physiological process (sensor) or to control protein activity (actuators).

The course is developed over 5 days. The first day will present an introduction to optogenetic basic principles and appplications given by Prof. Sophie Vriz (CdF and ParisVII) and Filippo Del Bene (Institut Curie).
The second, third and fourth day  will present lectures from experts in the field of optogenetic covering a broad spectrum of thematics and model systems:
-    Chemical approaches & multi photon microscopy
-    Fluorescence as a sensor for cellular physiology
-    Light control of protein activity
The last day is dedicated to students exams and presentations.

Relevant for PhD students, Postdoctoral researchers and Research Engineers interested in Optogenetic applications.
A small group of M2 students from the Magistère Européen de Génétique will attend the course.

First come, first served basis.
