    Description

    The course makes participants familiar with the essentials of classical developmental genetics, with contemporary genetic and neurobiological methods in Drosophila, C.elegans and Mammals. It highlights modern neurogenetic research: neurogenesis, brain regionalization, tissue specification, learning and memory and mechanosensations. The course will also focus on disease models for neuronal degeneration and neural tumorigenesis. The expertise obtained in this course should enable students to appreciate the potential of animal model systems to understand the links between genes, neurons, nervous system and behaviour under normal and disease conditions. It should help to initiate neurobiological research projects, such as a master's thesis or a Ph.D. thesis, in model
    organisms. This course is a part of the MSc specialization in Neuro- and Developmental Biology jointly operated by the Universities of Bern and Fribourg.

    Training objectives

    This lecture course focuses on one of the key fields in modern neurobiology, neurogenetics, which attempts to unravel the genetic basis of brain structure, brain
    development and behaviour. The course mostly refers to the model organism Drosophila but also establishes crucial links with the nematode C. elegans and mammalian model system such as mouse  and human organoids.
