About the Practical Course

The aim of this course is to provide practical training in the use of RNA interference (RNAi) methods in various biological systems.
A particular focus will be on high-throughput RNAi screening approaches in human cells, and in model organisms such as Drosophila and C. elegans.

a

The course will include both lectures on the background of RNAi analysis, hands-on training in the setup of screening experiments and tutorials on data analysis and interpretation.

Participants will learn how to setup experiments for high-throughput screening experiments using simple readouts such as homogenous luciferase assays and high-content analysis by automated imaging.

Data analysis approaches and integration with other genomic data sets will be taught in tutorials.

The course is aimed at PhD students and post-docs who are currently using or planning to utilize RNAi methods.
