Course: Técnicas básicas para la cría, mantenimiento y experimentación biológica con el pez cebra (Danio rerio)
El objetivo de este curso es brindar las bases metodológicas del manejo en el laboratorio del pez cebra para ser utilizado como animal modelo de experimentación en las Ciencias Biológicas.
Técnicas de laboratorio a realizar:
obtención de embriones, observación, identificación de estadios, microinyección, extracción y análisis de proteínas y ácidos nucleicos, hibridación in situ, inmunolocalización, tinción de cartílagos y huesos, y montaje de embriones para observación en microscopio confocal.
El curso de modalidad intensiva (40 horas) se realizará del 1º al 5 de Agosto de 2016, en los laboratorios del IBR-sede CCT-Rosario.

Practical course and symposium, May 14-20, 2016.
Center for Genome Regulation. Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de Chile.
The advent of genome editing technologies and articficial
transcriptional regulators have revolutionized biology and
biotechnology. In this course, techniques and applications will
be discussed and exemplified with hands on experiments in
model organisms (bacteria, Drosophila and zebrafish).
Application to the course is open to graduate students, postdocs
and young PIs; the symposium is open to the community; there
are no registration fees but application to attend is required.

This is to announce the 2nd Chi-Bin Chien Award, nominations for which are due March 26, 2014.
The Chi-Bin Chien Award has been established by the zebrafish research community and GSA in memory of Dr. Chi-Bin Chien (1965 – 2011). Chi-Bin was Professor of Neurobiology and Anatomy at the University of Utah and served the international zebrafish community in numerous ways, including his service as Director of the Zebrafish Neural Development and Genetics Course at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory and as an organizer of the International Conference on Zebrafish Genetics and Development. The Award will celebrate Chi-Bin’s enthusiasm and love for the discussion of scientific ideas and the good things that grow out of interactions and open discourse among scientists, his efforts to mentor and support the development of young scientists, and the collaborative and generous spirit with which he contributed to the advance of research with the zebrafish. The award will be given to an outstanding graduate student, postdoctoral trainee, or recently appointed faculty member from any country who has made significant contributions to the field of zebrafish research and has exhibited the generosity and openness that characterized and motivated Chi-Bin. The awardee will be granted a cash award and international recognition as an invited speaker at the biennial International Conference on Zebrafish Development and Genetics.
Nominations for the Chi-Bin Chien Award should be submitted by the candidate’s PhD or post-doctoral mentor by e-mail by March 26, 2014 to email@example.com. The application package should be a single PDF file that includes:
The 2014 Chi-Bin Chien Award Committee
Michael Granato, University of Pennsylvania Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Philadelphia.
David Grunwald, University of Utah Deptartment of Genetics, Salt Lake City.
