About the practical course

Molecular interactions have been studied for decades by biochemists looking to progressively build the protein interactome within cells. However, the biochemical approaches that are used often require researchers to extract protein complexes from cell lisate, which can generate artefacts. In addition, these approaches usually do not give access to the localisation and dynamics of these interactions within the cells. During the last fifteen years, different fluorescence microscopy approaches have emerged to study protein-protein interactions directly in living cells such as fluorescence resonance energy transfer, fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy, fluorescence complementation or correlation imaging methods. These different methods are complementary and they bring new knowledge about the spatio-temporal regulations of protein-protein interactions in their natural environment, the living cell. These different methods are now mature enough to promote the development of their use in biological labs interested in protein-protein interactions.

 

The objective of this EMBO Practical Course is to disseminate practical knowledge concerning these quantitative fluorescence microscopy methods aimed at studying protein-protein interactions in living cells. The EMBO Practical Course will present in detail each fluorescence microscopy method currently available to study protein-protein interactions. The complementarity and limitations of the different methods will also be presented.

Selection Criteria

Applicants should provide a short CV (1 page) as well as a motivation letter (1 page) describing why they would benefit from participating to this workshop. These can be pasted into the online application form.

  • Experience with fluorescence microscopy will be a prerequisite.
  • We will favor early stage career scientists (PhD students, post-docs and young investigators).
  • We will favor applicants showing an immediate need in the presented methods for the development of their research projects.
  • Among applicants with different backgrounds (biophysics, cell biology...), we will favor people with a more biological background.

Poster Specification

  • Please bring one printed copy of your poster at A0 size, portrait format
  • Please also bring an accompanying presentation of 10-15 mins to explain the poster. Four participant talks will be selected.

Payment

Once they are selected for the workshop, the applicant will receive an email describing how they should proceed for the payment of the registration fee.

Travel

The city of Rennes can be reach by plane - there are two planes per day from Paris - or by train from Paris and other cities in France and Europe.

From the Rennes airport to the institute of Genetics and Development of Rennes (~40 min)

The easiest way to travel is to take a taxi cab. If you prefer to take public transport, turn left at the exit of the airport and walk along the avenue Joseph Le Brix for 300 m, cross the small square and reach the bus stop Aire Libre Aéroport. Take bus number 57 to bus stop République and then bus C4 (direction Grand Quartier) until bus stop La Salle. Walk back 50m and turn left onto the street Victor le Gorgeu. Walk to the end of the street and enter the university campus on the right. The workshop will be held in the building with the yellow blinds that can be seen from the entrance of the campus.

From the Rennes railway station to the institute of Genetics and Development of Rennes (~20 min)

Take subway line A (direction Kennedy) and stop at République. Then take bus C4 (direction Grand Quartier) to bus stop La Salle. Walk back 50m and turn left onto the street Victor le Gorgeu. Walk to the end of the street and enter the university campus on the right. The workshop will be held in the building with the yellow blinds that can be seen from the entrance of the campus.
