Monday, 04. December 2017, Seminarraum Anthropologie: 2nd smallRNAgroup Mini-Symposium. Candidates of the group will present their projects in short talks.
Following this: Discussion and Glühwein. Anyone interested is welcome to attend.
Information for students
PDF files from lectures and talks can be downloaded below. Files are compressed and decompression requires a password since

Applications for a Bachelor-, Master- or PhD position are welcome!
Interested and motivated bachelor/master/PhD students are welcome to
apply for a thesis position in our group. We currently offer a PhD project
in the IPP summer call 2016. The candidates are expected
to have a good biomolecular background. Beside the wet lab work the
projects will imply bioinformatic analyses. Skills in a programming
language such as Perl, Python or C/C++ are advantageous. At least we expect
the candidates to aquire these skills in the course of their thesis.
The candidates will learn and apply a number of classical molecular lab techniques such as: - DNA/RNA Extraction and Purification - PCR and quantitative Real-Time PCR (qPCR) - Agarose/Polyacrilamide Gelelectrophoresis - Cell culture techniques incl. knock-down experiments - Co-Immunoprecipitation (Co-IP) - Western Blot - NGS Library Preparation - Molecular Cloning - Sanger Sequencing
Many projects include the analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data.
The extent of data produced by these new sequencing techniques requires
robust automated processing and analysis methods. Therefore the
candidates have to apply bioinformatic tools that for the most part
represent in-house Perl scripts that have been developed in our group.
However, analyses will likely require the customization of existing, or
the development of new Perl scripts. Large scale analysis can be
performed on the institute's high performance linux server (64 cores,
260 GB RAM).
