LifeB | Laboratory of interaction and function of essential biomolecules

How can we make

cells younger?

Our basic research is focused on quantitative description of interaction of essential molecules. Our objectives are slower cell aging, improved regeneration, and effective cancer defeat.

News

19-22 June 2018
Summer School on Experimental Biology
We organize Summer school on experimental biology, 19-22 June 2018.  The workshop is dedicated to the most sophisticated gene editing methods, genome analyses, proteomic assays and quantitative descriptions of essential biomolecular interactions.
Neil Dear from the University of Leicester will present basic principles and advanced use of CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing systems.
Jan Provaznik from European Molecular Biology Laboratory will teach us how to perform genomic data analysis.
Ondej Sedo from the CEITEC's Core Facility Proteomics will present practical MALDI MS profiling. Fifteen mainly PhD students will learn principles and expand their practical skills in advanced techniques of experimental biology. The Summer school is among main events of CEITEC in June 2018. You can register fort the Summer school here  before 5 June 2018.
