Register for this PhD week HERE!
The board of directors of the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics established a structured PhD program for the PhD students of the Institute. The program is aimed especially at PhD students in their first and second year, though more senior students are also welcome, if there are free places left. The program currently consists of three courses dealing with the main scientific fields represented at the MPIMG:
- Developmental genetics
- Genome regulation
- Computational biology
The course provides participating students with a general idea about the basics of the field, and presents an overview of the projects conducted at the MPIMG. The module “Developmental genetics” will take place from 23rd - 27th of October 2017. It is organized by the group of Prof. Herrmann. During the program you will cover topics such as embryogenesis, organ development and Non-Mendelian inheritance. You will also learn practical techniques like mouse embryo preparation, FACS sorting and RT-PCR analysis. A detailed program will follow closer to the date.
