The LabEx INFORM is organizing a practical courses in quantitative biology for engineers from Ecole Centrale Marseille.

Students who follow a one-year specialization in bioengineering (2nd year of their cursus) have the opportunity to discover our labs. A 4-day-session is scheduled on a yearly basis in spring.

The hands‐on experiments proposed consist in preparation of biological samples, in vivo imaging, image analysis/modeling, mathematical treatment of the data…

Examples of practical trainings proposed in 2016 :

  • Morphogenesis and mechanics: drosophila embryo preparation, live confocal imaging, image quantification
  • Cell polarisation: C. elegans embryo preparation, in vivo imaging and fluorescence measurements
  • Toxin pore formation: lipid bilayer preparation, toxin preparation, atomic force microscopy
