The University of Maine Darling Marine Center will once again host a Developmental Biology Teaching Workshop, June 25-29, 2013. Openings are still available!
This workshop is geared toward university faculty, postdocs, and graduate students interested in teaching developmental biology. It provides basic hands-on experience with organisms commonly studied in teaching laboratories. These include sea urchins and sand dollars, planaria, Drosophila, chick embryos, Spirostomum, Hydra, Lumbriculus, and flowering plants. Techniques will range from classical microsurgical techniques to fluorescence microscopy and applications of reporter gene technology.
