========================================================================
- Lecture and demonstration for handling recombinant adenovirus
========================================================================

Overview: The adenovirus vector has high gene introduction efficiency
for not only the proliferating cells but also the non-proliferating
cells and undifferentiated cells. In addition, in comparison with the
non-viral transfection method, the method using the adenovirus vector
can induce strong expression levels of gene of interest.
Furthermore, unlike lentivirus vector, adenovirus vector does not have
an ability to integrate to the chromosome of host cells. Therefore, the
adenovirus vector system is a powerful tool for transient gene
expression in animal cells. Lecture and practical demonstration about
handling recombinant adenovirus, including the construction of
adenoviral shuttle vector, the production of viral particle and the
methods for purification of recombinant virus.

Date: From December 21 to 22, 2015, 2 consecutive days

Place: BioResource Building for Cell Research, RIKEN Tsukuba campus.

Eligibility: Those who have skills for cell culturing, and are planning
to work or working with adenoviral gene introduction system.

Capacity of enrollment: 6 people

Tuition: 11,000 JPY

How to apply: Please contact to following address.

- The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2015
========================================================================

This year's Prize is awarded to Drs. Tomas Lindahl, Francis Crick
Institute, UK (the mechanism of base excision repair), Aziz Sancar,
University of North Carolina, USA (the mechanism of nucleotide excision
repair) and Paul Modrich, Duke University School of Medicine, USA (the
mechanism of mismatch repair) for mechanistic studies of DNA repair.
Almost all genes of human, mouse, Schizosaccharomyces pombe and
thermophiles for the studies of DNA repair are available from us and
listed in our web page at http://dna.brc.riken.jp/en/GSB0022en.html.
We are looking forward to receiving your request.
Year's
Our web site is linked to DNA repair in the KEGG pathway. You can search
of the associated gene resources in DNA repair mechanism by using KEGG.
Please follow a usage of the KEGG
