31 January - 3 February 2011, Lectures and practical courses on Stem cell differentiation

Stem cell differentiation: MicroRNAs and transcription factors as determinants of cell phenotype
 A 40 h module consisting of lectures, guest lectures, research seminars, group work (including the use of Mir@nt@n-based informatics) and practical courses
To describe microRNA and transcription factor (TF) interaction as a key regulatory system in the determination of cell phenotype through regulation of marker gene expression. To describe how microRNA signatures of cell phenotypes are determinants for normal organ functioning and pathophysiology.
Where and when : Domus Medica, University of Oslo, Institute of Basic Medical Science, Department of Biochemistry: Norwegian Center for Stem Cell Research. 31/1-2011 - 3/2-2011.
