Czech Centre for Phenogenomics CCP

Metabolism from cells to mouse CCP in BIOCEV, Vestec/Prague, 25-26 April 2017

This unique workshop provides the introduction and practical hands-on of integrated metabolomics workflows, employing the techniques of cellular energy metabolism (Agilent Seahorse XF), detailed metabolomic analysis by LC/MS Q-TOF and the translation of cell culture results into a living mouse model using indirect calorimetry. Results from integrated experimental model, employing all the three techniques will be presented.


  • Introduction into experimental workflow design
  • Assay of cellular metabolism in real-time
  • Mass spectrometry metabolomics workflows
  • Indirect calorimetry technique

Practical hands-on in groups:

  • Agilent Seahorse XFp
  • Agilent LC/MS Q-TOF
  • Indirect Calorimetry

Place: Czech Centre for Phenogenomics, Vestec/Prague, Czech Republic Application deadline: 20 April 2017 Participants: A maximum of 30 participants Course fee: 50 € (includes: coffeebreaks, lunches, social dinner, reagents & consumables for hands-on session, participant bag)

Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

UAB’s 3rd training course on mouse and rat bone phenotyping

Barcelona, Spain, 10-13 July 2017

Objective of the course
The aim of this course is capacitating participants to localize and to interpret the most common skeletal alterations found in mice and rats. This will occur in the context of dedicated learning sessions devoted to the study of bone anatomy, histology, immunohistochemistry, ultrastructure and imaging. Each lecture will be followed by a practical session in which participants will work with real bone specimens, radiographs, histological preparations, and images from TEM and micro-CT. In addition, the course will include seminars where specific skeletal abnormalities found in mutant mice will be discussed.

Course coordinator: Jesús Ruberte, Professor of Veterinary Anatomy. Head of the Mouse Imaging Platform and Morphological Analysis Unit, CBATEG, UAB
Registration deadline: 25 May 2017
Tuition fee: 950 €
Maximum number of participants: 15
Applications should be sent to
