Forthcoming Events

Life Sciences Career Day

Are you life science graduate student or postdoc wondering what to do for the next step of your career? Then come along to the Life Sciences Career Day at IMB, Mainz on Friday 6 November.

Along with the more traditional jobs in academia and the pharmaceutical industry, modern life sciences also offer other career opportunities to life scientists. This year's Career Day will provide information on academic and research careers in biotech and the life sciences as well as the alternative career options that are increasingly available.

This event is FREE and open to all graduate students and postdocs in the life sciences and will be held in English.

iCLIP: Genomic views of protein RNA interactions

Individual-nucleotide resolution UV crosslinking and immunoprecipitation (iCLIP) has recently established itself as a leading method to map the RNA interaction sites of a single protein of interest with high resolution and in a quantitative manner. The major aim of this EMBO Practical Course is to disseminate knowledge and proficiency in this technically challenging ribonomics method. Participants will be guided through the complete protocol, and introduced to bioinformatics strategies for analysis of iCLIP data. Hands-on sessions in the laboratory will be complemented by presentations from established scientists, who will share their experiences of using iCLIP to answer different biological questions.  

The workshop will be held from 15-21 November 2015 at IMB, Mainz, Germany.
