Confocal microscopy course
2-5 April 2019

Bioscience Technology Facility, Department of Biology, University of York, UK

An intensive, hands-on, four-day training course in the rapidly developing techniques of confocal microscopy. The course will initially cover basic confocal but then swiftly move on to the more advanced techniques such as FRAP, FRET and spectral unmixing. Over the four days, all participants will have used three different confocal set-ups; Zeiss LSM880 on an inverted microscope, Zeiss LSM710 on an upright microscope, and an Andor spinning disk confocal. To demonstrate each technique, a wide range of both samples (plants to cell culture) and labels (antibody to fluorescent proteins) will be used. Participants are welcome to bring their own samples.

For additional information please check the course web page.

As the number of places is limited to permit full hands-on practice, early registration is advised.
