Workshops:


March 10, 2022
Optogenetics workshop: from the fundamentals to the cutting edge. 

Learn how to construct your own optogenetic tools for the modulation of intracellular signaling, how to use a simple LED-device for precise temporal activation, and how to set up a platform for single-cell feedback-control experiments.

Workshop leaders:
Lucien Hinderling, University of Bern
Thomas Hӧhener, University of Bern
Lorena Benedetti, Janelia Research Campus

16:30 GMT/11:30am EST/8:30am PST


April 21, 2022
Long-term imaging and quantification of mRNAs in live single cells using SunRISER and dNEMO

This workshop will provide an overview of how to implement the SunRISER approach for live-cell imaging of single mRNAs and a demonstration for rapid automated and semi-automated detection of fluorescent puncta from time-lapse images using the dNEMO interface.

Workshop leaders:
Gabriel Kowalczyk (Lee Lab, University of Pittsburgh)
Yue Guo (Lee Lab, University of Pittsburgh)
Zachary Hemminger (Wollman Lab, UCLA)

16:30 GMT/11:30am EDT/8:30am PDT
