Auf dieser Seite erfahren Sie Wichtiges und Neues rund um das Zentrum für Synthetische Mikrobiologie sowie von SYNMIKRO veranstaltete Kongresse, Seminare, Workshops und Tagungen.
August 19th until August 30th 2013
The registration is now closed
Location: The Summer School takes place both, at the Philipps-Universität Marburg as well as at the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology (MPI). SYNMarburg is organized by the LOEWE Center for Synthetic Microbiology, SYNMIKRO, a joint scientific center between the Philipps-Univerisität and the MPI for Terrestrial Microbiology.
Aims: It is the long-term aim of the SYNMarburg to educate a new generation of young scientists who identify with the versatile approaches in synthetic microbiology. SYNMarburg is applicable for students at the end of their studies of natural sciences (MSc) and for PhD-students, who will participate in the manifold and interdisciplinary research activities in the center and will gain access to the new area of synthetic microbiology/biology. SYNMarburg is an important building block to promote young academics in the area of microbiology and molecular cell biology.
Various aspects of the new area of synthetic microbiology:
Techniques and methods:
The kick-off for the Summer School is a SYNMIKRO-Symposium on August 19th, and the concluding symposium takes place on August 30th. In between are four practical blocks. Three of these blocks are subdivided into theoretical introductions and practical methodological units given by external experts. The fourth block provides time for experiments in an elective area of interest within one of the research groups of SYNMIKRO.
SYNMIKRO-Symposium (Mon, Aug. 19):
Introduction of SYNMIKRO – LOEWE Center for Synthetic Microbiology
Introduction to the topics of SYNMarburg and presentation of the center by the SYNMIKRO teachers.
Block 1 (Tue – Wed, Aug. 20 - 21):
Victor Sourjik, Heidelberg, Germany
Analysis of signal-induced protein interaction in living cells and in real time (example: chemotaxis); study of robustness of signaling systems; analysis of a synthetic signaling path; mathematical modeling of dynamics in signaling paths.
Block 2 (Thu – Fri, Aug. 22 - 23):
Bacterial Cell Biology and Synthetic Cells
Frederico Gueiros-Filho, São Paulo, Brasil
