Mouse phenogenomics: good practises in the use of mouse models for biomedical and scientific research

when 12 June 2017 - 16 June 2017
language English
duration 1 week
credits 3 ECTS
fee EUR 360

In 2015, PHENOMIN offered an international training of excellence providing engineers, PhDs and researchers with an innovative program focused on best practices in the use of the mouse model for biomedical and scientific research; the school is again scheduled in 2017!

Would you like to learn how to choose, create and analyse your best mouse model? Do you have a sufficient background in mouse functional genomics to lead as best your research?

Mornings are devoted to lectures whereas afternoons are devoted to "practical sessions" needing the active attendees’ participation (synthesis of attendee's research, work session in groups, round table).

Course leader

Yann Hérault, CR, director of the Institut Clinique de la souris (Mouse Clinical Institut, Strasbourg, France), deputy director of the IGBMC (Institut de génétique et biologie moléculaire et cellulaire, Strasbourg, France), and coordinator of PHENOMIN

Target group

The target audience consists of Master's degrees or researchers who directly or indirectly use mouse as animal model for their research. We encourage both industrial and academic researchers, postdocs and PhDs from all Europe to attend this school.
The school involves French and European major infrastructures in functional genomics in mouse, thought its INFRAFRONTIER partnership.

Course aim

general objective:

PHENOMIN offers an international training of excellence providing master's degrees, engineers, PhDs and researchers with an innovative program focused on best practices in the use of the mouse model for biomedical research; this program also addresses the item of continuing professional education consistent with the new European directive requirement for lab animal protection in experiments.

The school will provide a wealth of information on good practices in the use of mouse model (standardized techniques, ethics, regulations, analysis, data and resources ...) to support attendees in their research:

• Accelerating the sharing of conceptual scientific advances, transfer of method to use of the mouse model for biomedical research: the issues of mouse genetics, mutagenesis, phenotyping, mouse colony management, and archiving- distribution lines of genetically modified mice will be covered.
• Support participants in the use of current European and international resources on mouse phenogenomics: cryopreservation, distribution and phenotyping data for lines already characterized and available to the scientific community.

Credits info

3 ECTS
All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance for their course, program which they may submit for continuing professional Education credits
