Molecular Biology of the Cell - 2012

Cells are the functional units of life and cell biology explores the complex processes that regulate their activity. As such, cell biology is a mix of disciplines that range from computations to imaging living organisms.

The aim of this course (theory and practice) of 4 weeks is to attract an international group of students (Master students and youg PhD students) to this research area by bringing together leading scientists for a series of state-of the-art lectures and cutting edge practical sessions. The practical course provides training in cell culture of transfected and infected cells, in vitro reconstitution of cellular functions, gene inactivation, and introduces students to cutting edge techniques of live imaging. Every week a specific theme is tackled and talks and experiments alternate.

Course description and programme  on the website of the Institut Pasteur.

Organizers: Roberto Bruzzone, Philippe Chavrier, Chiara Zurzolo
