Dr Johanna Gassler will give a seminar, Jul. 15, 2021 at 9:30 am, Aud. B and zoom

This Thursday (July 15) at 9.30, Johanna Gassler will give a talk entitled “Chromatin reorganization to totipotency during the mammalian oocyte-to-zygote transition” in Génopode auditorium B.

Johanna is a postdoc candidate for the Vastenhouw lab and she has done some exciting work on the oocyte to zygote transition in mouse embryos during her PhD in the lab of Kikue Tachibana at the IMP in Austria. 

We can host 28 people in the auditorium and there might be about 10 slots left, so please feel welcome to join in person.
We will also broadcast the talk on zoom for those who cannot be here.

CUSO workshop on Plant development, Sep. 3, 2021 Deadline Jul. 26, 2021

Johanna Krahmer, Dr., University of Lausanne
Ana Lopez-Vazquez, PhD student, University of Lausanne
Christian Fankhauser, Prof., University of Lausanne

This is a one-day workshop on plant development with a journal club, lectures, interactive discussions, and a poster session.
The lectures will be given by three established group leaders covering different aspects of plant development with a focus on above-ground parts: Dr Edwige Moyroud (Sainsbury Laboratory, University of Cambridge), Prof Marja Timmermans (ZMBP, University of Tübingen) and Prof Enrico Coen (John Innes Centre, Norwich). The speakers will give an introduction to their research area and present their own research. Therefore students will not only learn about plant development but also about current research topics, they will be encouraged to think about and discuss the research process and challenges involved.
In order to make students familiar with the topics ahead of the lectures and to allow speakers to focus on their latest research rather than long introduction, students will be asked to read one paper of each speaker in advance. These papers will be discussed in a journal club earlier the same day of the workshop, where UNIL teachers will guide the discussion. The papers will be sent out at least 1 month in advance to the participants, to allow careful reading.
The meeting will finish with a poster session and time for more discussion of students with the speakers and among themselves. Posters should be about the students’ PhD projects – either focussing on results or outlining planned projects for students early on in the PhD.
As an additional feature of this workshop, virtual hubs will be set up at the Leloir Institute and Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology or Rosario (IBR), Argentina and the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. These hubs will be two-way interactive during the lectures and discussions and one-to-one virtual meetups during the poster session will be possible. This is to allow students at these other universities to benefit and to give an opportunity for interaction between students in different countries as we realise that these days graduate students do not have much opportunity to do this due to the pandemic.
This hybrid on-site / virtual strategy is also a chance for students and organisers to become familiar with novel conference formats that allow international participation with local in-person meetings but without the need for time-consuming travel and associated CO2 emissions.

If required due to the pandemic, this meeting will be converted to an entirely virtual format.

[BC]2 Basel Computational Biology Conference Sep. 13 – 15, 2021

The [BC]2 Basel Computational Biology Conference will take place on-site, in Basel, and registration is now open.
The early-bird fee is applied until 30 June: registrer now!

Participating as a student or early career scientists is a prime opportunity to learn about cutting edge research in computational biology and bioinformatics, and to network with other members of the community. It is also a great opportunity to enhance your career by initiating or strengthening the scientific exchange with other researchers or industry.

The LS2 Intersection Bioinformatics and Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) offer registration fellowships for nine students (BSc, MSc or PhD), who wish to attend [BC]2 (only applicable to an on-site participation).

Deadline to apply : 13 June 2021
