Lennart just came back from the 2015 Zebrafish Development and Genetics course at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, USA. The panoramic shot below shows the idyllic location of the MBL campus: student housing on the left, a research buildings on the right, and the magnificent view of Eel Pond in the middle of Woods Hole. The two week course covers an eclectic overview of backgrounds, concepts, and experimental approaches. The MBL and Woods Hole environment, the small course size of 22 participants, and the commitment of organizers and instructors allow for very hands-on training sessions and a very communal atmosphere. Check out the photos to get an impression of the training sessions and great social atmosphere that make this course so unique.
