The 25th session of the ICGEB Board will take place in Trieste, Italy this May. Science Talks by Richard Roberts, Nobel laureate and Mariano Garcia-Blanco, members of the ICGEB Council of Scientific Advisers, and Mauro Giacca, ICGEB Director-General will be streamed live on Facebook on Wednesday, 22 May 2019 – from 2.30 p.m.
Researchers from the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology and King’s College London, UK have found that therapy that can induce heart cells to regenerate after a heart attack.
A robust yeast strain that can produce up to 15.5% more ethanol when glucose or lignocellulose biomass – rice and wheat straw – is fermented has been isolated by researchers from the ICGEB-DBT Advanced Bioenergy Research
Course “Fluorescence Microscopy” – FluoMicro 2018 in collaboration with Zeiss. Imaging technologies are widespread in the life science laboratories today. Many biological questions may be addressed applying fluorescence microscopy and live imaging technologies. Advances in the available instruments and technologies are continuously evolving. FluoMicro@ICGEB aims at instructing researchers in the use of fluorescence microscopy in life science applications. The Course examines cutting-edge technologies through real-world examples provided by a panel of experts. Four imaging/analysis stations are organised on the instruments: confocal imaging, live cell microscopy, high-throughput microscopy, image processing and quantitative analysis. To this end morning theoretical sessions will provide the necessary background and afternoon practical sessions will permit hands-on experience on state-of-the-art instruments. Participants will be divided in small groups, which will rotate between the four practical sessions. It is expected that the participants at the end of the Course will be capable of applying fluorescence microscopy and live cell imaging to their experimental needs. A Certificate of Attendance will be provided to all participants.
