This five week course will consist of a first “bootcamp” week to be followed by two 2‑week research project sessions. Each session will consist of three or four experimental threads led by instructors and TAs who will closely work with groups of 4 – 5 students. Each day will consist of a morning lecture and discussions followed by lab work late into the evening.
The bootcamp week will be aimed at introducing all students to a basic set of microscopy, quantitative image analysis using Matlab and theoretical modeling that will be necessary for the later research projects. The lectures will take place in parallel with the KITP workshop “Evolutionary Cell Biology” providing a fertile forum for discussions and the exchange of ideas with the workshop participants.
