Practical organisation

The course is held in a one-week session, and requires full-time attendance during this week. Lodgings and meals are organized for students unable to commute from their places of residence. The locale is the Biozentrum of the University of Basel. The Biozentrum can be conveniently reached by public transportation or by car (see below).
Sessions runs from 9:00 to 18:00 approximately, with a lunch break. As a general rule, each half-day consist of a theoretical introduction of 90-120min, while the rest is spent doing practical exercises under the supervision of the course staff.
The course is free of charge to all academic participants and supported by the Swiss Committee for Molecular Biology. We have currently no funding to give support to the participants, but we might offer partial reimbursement of travel expenses to students from the swiss Universities or other swiss academic institutions.

Technical aspects

The number of participants is limited by the number of assistants and by the number of workstations available in the classroom. Every effort is made to ensure that the skills acquired during the course can be used at any academic site.
