Course - Bangkok, Thailand
This free laboratory-based Advanced Course will give participants a working knowledge of and practical experience in cutting edge Plasmodium experimental genetics techniques, from designing gene targeting vectors and creating transgenic parasites to phenotyping the strains that result. The goal is to facilitate the participants’ own research careers by exposing them to state-of-the-art experimental approaches, while discussing the advantages and limitations of each approach.
The week-long course will give the participants hands-on experience working with two human Plasmodium species – the major human pathogen, Plasmodium falciparum, and the zoonotic parasite Plasmodium knowlesi. The practical work will teach participants fundamental technologies such as transfection, genotyping and phenotyping by flow cytometry and microscopy, and will also include cutting-edge technological approaches such as using next generation sequencing to simultaneously phenotype multiple strains in parallel. The laboratory-based programme will be complemented by research presentations by distinguished guest speakers and there will be extensive opportunities for participants to discuss and seek guidance on their own research projects.
