Workshops and courses are open in priority to students and staff of the MPI for Molecular Genetics and the IMPRS-BAC.
Before signing up for workshops/nanocourses, please make sure that you can attend all the dates and write them in your calendar. If you do not show up or cancel at very short notice, other interested students will not be able to participate.

You can find the list of the upcoming workshops here.
The following elements make up the curriculum of the IMPRS-BAC

- Nanocourses push your knowledge at the cutting edge of research in biology and computation
- Otto Warburg Summer Schools provide an in-depth look at a current topic
- Colloquia allow doctoral students to present their research to their peers and other local scientists. Invited guests complement these half-day events.
- Once a year, the student association of the MPIMG organises a doctoral student retreat where participants learn about each other's research, network and gain new perspectives on their own work.
- Transferable skills complement the academic curriculum by teaching you to write, lead, publish, network, manage, present and plan your future career. In addition to those listed below, the courses of the Dahlem Research School are also accessible to doctoral students of the IMPRS-BAC.
