Practical Course

SIS code: MB151C01E

Practical hands-on training on selected single-molecule experimental techniques and data analysis, belonging to group of methods known as quantitative bio-imaging.

October 21.-25., 2019

BIOCEV, Vestec

Using molecular motors and supported lipid bilayers as model systems, and also live cells for some methods, you will carry out state-of-the-art single-molecule detection and imaging using Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) based methods and Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy. You will also use Optical Tweezers to manipulate single molecules and to measure forces exerted by single molecular motors.

Registration deadline: September 9, 2019/October 7, 2019 (early bird/final)

The course is supported by the National Infrastructure for Biological and Medical Imaging (Czech-BioImaging, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports – Large Research Infrastructure, LM2015062).
