EMBL Course: Optogenetics: From Design to Cell Signalling to Tissue Morphogenesis

25 March 2019 - 29 March 2019

EMBL Advanced Training Centre, Heidelberg 69117, Germany

Optogenetics is a powerful technique that has been primarily applied in the field of neuroscience with spectacular success. This course will be focused specifically on the new and emerging field of non-neuronal optogenetics. The possibility to modulate signaling pathways and cell behavior with high spatio-temporal precision offers entirely novel approaches to dissect molecular mechanisms governing morphogenesis and homeostasis from the cell to the organismal scale.
