Graduate school ‘Gut-Liver Axis’: Laboratory rotations as key elements of the educational programme
Searching for alternative strategies and experimental approaches, it helps to look beyond the boundaries of your own PhD project. Therefore, CRC1382 offers carefully planned and prepared laboratory rotations for all graduate students involved in BMGS ‘Gut-Liver Axis’.
These laboratory rotations offer invaluable insights into the portfolio of laboratory protocols, animal models, interventional procedures, high-end analytical equipment, as well as state-of the art visualization and data modelling approaches that are established and available within CRC1382.
Four rotations could be realized in the first half of 2020:
- Proteomics/Peptidomics: High-resolution mass-spectometry for the identification of biomolecules
- Multimodal whole animal imaging and quantitative image analysis
- Microbiota profiling by 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing: Data analysis Workshop
- Designing animal experiments
While the first two courses could take place in the laboratory as planned, the next two courses scheduled for April and May had to be adapted to an online format due the Corona Pandemics.
