Free live webinar—Basic techniques in autophagy research
Date: Wednesday, October 9, 2013
Time: 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. PT (3:00 p.m. ET)
Autophagy is vital for maintaining normal cell function and enables cells to survive stresses from the external environment, including nutrient deprivation and pathogen or disease responses. Disturbances in autophagy are associated with metabolic and neurological diseases, as well as cancer.
Topics to be covered include:
- Tips and tricks for selecting the right tools and achieving the best results
- Fluorescent proteins and antibodies used to analyze both live and fixed cells
- Analysis steps using a variety of multiplexing options, with quantitative methods for image analysis or fluorescence intensity measurement
