BIO-603(PA) / 1 credit
Teacher: Persat Alexandre Louis André
Remark: 3-day Block course, every year in January. To register, contact EDMS Administration
The student will learn how to: - perform high resolution microscopy of single bacterial cells - perform a motility assay - operate high resolution microscope - analyze image data
In this project, you will perform a typical motility experiment consisting in tracking single bacteria cells as they swim throughout a simple medium. In this configuration, they swim with flagella ultimately generating displacements. You will perform high resolution microscopy to visualizae their displacements. these movies will be analyzed with different computational methods.
Open to max. 2 students. Please note that you are not allowed to inscribe in your own group!
bacteria, flagellum, swimming motility, microscopy, confocal microscopy, image analysis.
