DIPP predoc course at the Vastenhouw lab
Updated: Jun 14
Our lab participated in teaching a week-long practical course to students of the Dresden Internation PhD Program (DIPP) who are in the first year of their PhD. The students learned about the CRISPR-Cas9 system and how it can be applied to model organisms such as zebrafish for efficient genome editing and mutagenesis. Amongst others, with CRISPR they managed to mutate a gene required for pigmentation of the zebrafish!
