Workshop on Phase Separation in Genome Organization  Jul 22, 2019

IISER Pune is happy to announce:

Hands-on Workshop on Phase Separation in Genome Organization (PSiGO)

See flyer

Date: July 22 to August 2, 2019

Venue: IISER Pune

AboutStudents will be introduced to the emerging area of biological phaseseparation in the context of asking questions about genome regulation. This 12-day course will involve “hands-on” lab modules throughout the day with defined breaks for white board based discussions and didactic lectures.

The lab modules are expected to entail well-characterized systems, such as the heterochromatin protein HP1. The experimental approaches we expect to cover are:
(i) Visualization and quantification of phase-separated droplets using light and fluorescence microscopy
(ii) Quantification of phase-separation properties using spin down assays

(iii) Investigating the material properties of phase-separated states.

 

Course Faculty:

Prof. Geeta Narlikar (UCSF)

Prof. Sanjeev Galande (IISER Pune)

Dr. Kundan Sengupta (IISER Pune)

Dr. Krishanpal Karmodiya (IISER Pune)
