Ribosome Profiling Course

We had an exciting time during the practical course on rapid and high sensitivity analyses of cellular translation by ribosome profiling. 13 international participants joined us in Regensburg for a five day lab course during which they very successfully prepared ribsome profiling libraries from a human cell line using only minute amounts of input material.

We would like to thank all participants for their enthusiasm and for sharing with us insight into their exciting research projects! We had a great time working together and discussion science with you.

We also thank 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) for supporting the course with exciting lectures and for contributing expert opinions and insight into the challenges and pitfalls of performing ribosome profiling experiments.

We are grateful for the support by the Graduate Research Academy RNA Biology of the Collaborative Research Center SFB 960 and siTOOLs Biotech.
