I would like to bring to your attention the following practical course which we will host in Regensburg from April 25th to 29th: 2022:
Practical course on rapid and high-sensitivity analyses of cellular translation by ribosome profiling
This hands-on course will teach how to generate comprehensive and quantitative snapshots of cellular translation from minute amounts of sample. Starting from cultured cells, ribosome-protected fragments will be produced, purified, and subjected to sequencing library preparation using a streamlined protocol which is optimized for small amounts of input. Detailed background information will be provided on (1) the optimization and adaptation of ribosome profiling to different model systems and research questions, (2) state-of-the-art sequencing library preparation, and (3) the bioinformatic analyses of ribosome profiling data.
Guest speakers will be: Sebastian Leidel (Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Bern, Switzerland) and Thomas Preiss (John Curtin School of Medical Research at the Australia National University, Australia)
Apply by March 27th with your CV and a letter of motivation to firstname.lastname@example.org. There are no registration fees!
This course is supported by the graduate school of the Graduate School RNA Biology of the Collaborative Research Centre 960 (SFB960) – RNP biogenesis: assembly of ribosomes and non-ribosomal RNPs and control of their function
