Phenotyping of Genetically Engineered Mouse Models

This course will be held again in 2017


Aim and content

The aim of the course is to teach and train the participants in approaches to efficient phenotyping of genetically engineered mouse models, and provide a deeper understanding of possibilities and limitations in the translation from findings in mouse models to relevance for human diseases.

The course consists of lectures on various genetically engineered mouse models and phenotypic evaluation of these with a special focus on pathology; seminars and group work with critical review of translational research; and practical exercises in phenotyping and pathological evaluation of mice.
