EMBO Practical course: Drosophila Techniques
11 - 18 March | 2011 | Lisbon | Portugal

The fruit fly Drosophila has been successfully used as model organism to study biological processes for over a century. This is largely due to continuous development of ever more sophisticated techniques. The course will cover basic to advanced Drosophila techniques with an emphasis on new technologies and data-mining of publicly available online resources, aiming to provide participants with a solid knowledgebase when starting / developing projects using Drosophila as a model organism.
- Basic and Advanced Genetics
- Development and Dissection
- Transposable Elements
- Screen Design
- Genetic Mosaics
- Transcriptomics and Proteomics
- In silico - Datamining and Online Resources
- Live Imaging
