This training course for advanced undergrad and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and independent investigators focuses on imaging of the neuronal activity and essential transgenesis technologies in zebrafish. The course will consist of laboratory exercises and lectures by leading scientists, providing experiences with topics such as calcium imaging using GCaMP, computer analysis, transposon-mediated transgenesis, and knock-in technology using CRISPR/Cas9. The course will accept up to 8~10 attendants. Applicants are selected by a committee in late May and successful applicants are notified by early June. Travel and accommodation expenses will be fully covered by an “international exchanges and collaboration” program from National Institute of Genetics.
