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
