This course is aimed at technicians and ccientists interested in the generation of transgenic animals. Participants should have basic experience with eukaryotic cells and microscopy.
30% of the course program covers lectures and tutorials on generating transgenic mice and corresponding microscopy and laser techniques by experts in the field. 70% focuses on hands-on practical work organised in small groups. These practicals will address the following topics: injection of DNA into the pronucleus of fertilised mouse oocytes, embryonic stem cell transfer into blastocysts, laser-assisted stem cell transfer into 8-cell stage embryos, and microscopy training.
This course is co-organised with Eppendorf.
