The INDEPTH Academy is a training resource developed by members of the COST Action 'Impact of Nuclear Domains On Gene Expression and Plant Traits (INDEPTH)'
In the INDEPTH Academy we will deliver multimedia resources to inform how the spatial (3D) organization of nuclear DNA is critical in the adaptation to environmental stresses.
These resources can be found on the
INDEPTH Academy YouTube Channel.
Our outputs will appear over the next few months and will include:
- Short webinar teaching resources that introduce functional domains of the nucleus (such as the nucleolus of nuclear envelope) and explore how chromatin dynamics influence gene expression
- Masterclass tutorials in which technical experts will lead discussion-led sessions on experimental techniques that are important for study of the plant nucleus
- Standardised Protocols that are linked to INDEPTH member research activities
- Expert talks from the 2021 SEB Antwerp Main Meeting Special Session on 'Dynamic organization of the nucleus across kingdoms''.
Technical webinar on Single Molecule Fluorescence in situ Hybridization (smFISH) in Whole Mount Plant Tissues with Dr Stefanie Rosa
Wednesday January 27th 2021, 2pm GMT.
Stefanie is a leading expert using smFISH in plants and will provide a 30minute introduction to her previous work using this technique. The remainder of the webinar will provide delegates with a unique opportunity to ask Stefanie technical questions about smFISH. Unlike many webinars we welcome detailed experimental questions that someone only with Stefanie's expertise is willing and able to answer. In the lead up to the webinar we will return to registered delegates to ask if they would like to pre-submit a question.
