Dear Colleagues,

Greetings and salutations to all.

We are asking for your assistance to promote the 2022 Xenopus Course at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The Xenopus course at CSHL has a long tradition of training the next generation of Xenopus researchers in critical skills to exploit Xenopus for understanding cell and developmental biology. After a pause following the Covid-19 pandemic, we are happy to announce that the course is back for in-person instruction next year. CSHL will work closely with us to take precautionary measures to ensure a safe learning environment.

To get the most out of the course, we encourage students to bring their own projects. Students are encouraged to identify genes of interest. We will design gRNAs for these genes to allow the students to knock these genes out at the course and analyze any phenotypes using all the tools available, from cut-and-paste embryology to advanced high-speed fluorescence confocal imaging.

In addition, we have the good fortune of overlapping with the Quantitative Imaging (QI) course at CSHL. We plan to build interactions between our groups to image Xenopus embryos using the latest imaging methods. This was a huge success in the previous years and offers the possibility to try light-sheet, high-speed live confocal, and super-resolution imaging methods.

Important Dates:
Course - March 30-April 12, 2022
Application Due Date: January 31, 2022

We have an exciting list of speakers/instructors including:

Lance Davidson, University of Pittsburgh;
Chenbei Chang, University of Alabama at Birmingham;
Hiro Funabiki, The Rockefeller University;
Douglas Houston, University of Iowa;
Mustafa Khokha, Yale University;
Carole LaBonne, Northwestern University;
Karen Liu, King's College London, UK;
Roberto Mayor, University College London, UK;
Rachel Miller, University of Texas;
Brian Mitchell, Northwestern University;
Gert Jan Veenstra, Radboud University, Netherland;
Sarah Woolner, University of Manchester, UK;
Martin Wuhr, Princeton University
