Course Overview

During the past decades, the model organism C. elegans has emerged as a critical experimental model for a wide variety of research fields ranging from cell biology to developmental biology, neurobiology and aging. C. elegans uniquely combines a sequenced genome, advanced genetics, mapped anatomy, cell lineage and connectivity with recent whole-organism single-cell transcriptomics. Consequently, it displays a constant advent of new methodologies. Being equipped with state-of-the-art methodologies is key for newcomers entering these growing fields. Besides, ground-breaking developments in imaging and genetic manipulation of recent years are sometimes not readily accessible even in established C. elegans labs. This course will give early-career scientists the opportunity to learn both well-established approaches and new cutting-edge methodologies.
