EMBL Course on Transgenic Animals – Micromanipulation Techniques (EPP17) 2017 Heidelberg

  • Conference Call
  • The Euro­pean Mol­e­c­u­lar Biol­ogy Lab­o­ra­tory (EMBL) will be hold­ing it’s 2017 Course on Trans­genic Ani­mals – Micro­ma­nip­u­la­tion Tech­niques on April 56, 2017 in Hei­del­berg, Ger­many and is seek­ing your participation.

    Course Overview

    30% of the course pro­gramme cov­ers lec­tures and tuto­ri­als on gen­er­at­ing trans­genic mice, and cor­re­spond­ing microscopy and micro­ma­nip­u­la­tion tech­niques by experts in the field. The other 70% focuses on hands-​on prac­ti­cal work organ­ised in small groups. These prac­ti­cals will address injec­tion of nucleic acids into the pronu­cleus and cyto­plasm of fer­tilised mouse oocytes, embry­onic stem cell trans­fer into blas­to­cysts, piezo-​assisted stem cell trans­fer into 8-​cell stage embryos and microscopy training.

    The course is lim­ited to 8 par­tic­i­pants. For selec­tion pur­poses, please note that your appli­ca­tion will not be con­sid­ered with­out a let­ter of motivation.


    This course is aimed at tech­ni­cians and sci­en­tists inter­ested in the gen­er­a­tion of trans­genic ani­mals. Par­tic­i­pants should have basic expe­ri­ence with eukary­otic cells and microscopy.


    • DNA/​RNA Microin­jec­tion into zygotes
    • Con­trast techniques
    • Embry­onic stem cell transfer
    • Piezo-​assisted micromanipulation

    Learn­ing Outcomes

    The aim of the course is to pro­vide par­tic­pants with hands-​on tuto­ri­als and the the­ory behind gen­er­at­ing trans­genic ani­mals. Microin­jec­tion into mouse zygotes will be cov­ered, as well as cell trans­fer into embryos and blastocysts.
