End of the 14th HKU-Pasteur Virology course!

Last Friday, the 14th HKU-Pasteur Virology Course finished in great style!

Participants and speakers spent 9 hectic days to explore how influenza viruses cause disease and what are the determinants of influenza virus transmission. As a practical workshop, the 24 participants formed groups to collaboratively prepare and present a multidisciplinary grant proposal to address the main challenges that influenza research is currently facing.
We celebrated the end of the course in Ocean Park, thanks to Mr Leo Kung, chairman of the park, friend and benefactor of HKU-PRP. Thanks to all participants for making this course a success! As usual, active and productive participation has been the key!

See you next year for the next virology course! And stay tuned for our other courses

6-17 November 2017 in Hong Kong: hands-on course on NGS data analysis

Closed. Thank you for the numerous applications! Selection results will be announced after September 15th, 2017. Stay tuned.

HKU-Pasteur Research Pole, the Center of Bioinformatics, Biostatistics and Integrative Biology (C3BI) at the Institut Pasteur in Paris and the Centre for Genomic Sciences at the University of Hong Kong organize a brand new course in Hong Kong.

Given the vast and continusously increasing reams of data that biological research is producing, it is essential that biologists possess basic knowledge of statistics and computing to be able to decipher this quantitative information.

This hands-on course will focus on Next Generation Sequencing datasets (NGS).

Introduction to Linux/R
Experimental design
• Assembly and mapping
• SNP and variant calling
• Differential analysis in NGS

• Disease association analysis

Held at HKU from 6 to 17 November 2017 (week 1: theory and practical examples for a broad audience, week 2: practical analysis and hands-on for a selected group of participants), this course is the right place to be to benefit from the expertise of trainers from both the Institut Pasteur network and HKU, and to learn how to exploit your research data at best!

Fees: 1,000.00 HKD for the first week - 2,000.00 HKD for the whole course (free for participants from the Institut Pasteur International Network)

Application form here.

Institut Pasteur & Institut Curie Course: Molecular Biology of the Cell Paris, January 8-February 9, 2018

This course is an intensive practical/theoretical course aimed at Master/early PhD students from Paris universities and from abroad.

The Molecular Biology of the Cell course is an intensive laboratory and lecture course of five weeks divided into weekly modules, each focusing on a cutting-edge aspect of cell biology. It is composed of lectures given by internationally renowned scientists, and of two practical sessions organized
together with teams from the Curie and the Pasteur institutes. The main topics of the course alternate between the cell biology of infection, cancer  and intracellular trafficking emphasizing new experimental approaches. The availability of the core Imaging Platform at Institut Pasteur will introduce students to advanced techniques for the dynamic visualization of cells in health and disease.

3 fellowships covering the course costs will be available, as indicated on the website.

The 2018 course will take place from January 8 to February 9, 2018 on the Institut Pasteur campus in Paris.
