Core Facilities Lectures on Modern Techniques in Life Sciences

The IMB Core Facilities Lecture Series gives introductions to the state-of-the art techniques in the life sciences. Lectures are given by experts from the Core Facilities on the latest technologies in the fields of Bioinformatics, Flow Cytometry, Genomics, Microscopy, Proteomics and Protein Production.

  • When? – 10:00-11.30 on Monday mornings (see schedule below)
  • Where? – IMB seminar room (Note: Due to COVID-19, CF lectures are now held online until further notice.)
  • For whom? – Lectures are open to everyone and some count towards the MSc credit programme at JGU

In addition, IMB's Core Facilities also runs practical training courses on:

  • Bioinformatics (R, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq)
  • Flow cytometry
  • Proteomics
  • Superresolution microscopy

The 2020 Core Facilities lecture programme runs from March to November and the full schedule can be found below.
