Core Facilities Lectures on Modern Techniques in Life Sciences

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

  • When? – 10:00-11.30  (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

MTiLS and CF lectures are open to everyone. Access in MS Teams for online lectures, however, requires either an active JGU user account or pre-registration via email. Please use the contact form below. Slides or handouts from past lectures are only accessible for attendees with JGU user accounts.

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

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

The 2022 Core Facilities lecture programme starts in March, and the full schedule can be found below.
