We are organizing in September: The 2nd Conference of the Visegrad Group Society for Developmental Biology!
Interns from the Open Science project, who are welcomed at our Laboratory of Anaerobic Microbiology every year, scored in the regional and national rounds of Students' Professional Activities (SPA). We congratulate the students and wish them success in their upcoming university studies and possibly in their future scientific careers.
For many years LAM laboratory takes part in the CAS project, Open Science. Every year the number of applicants increases, this year and last year our projects were among the top three with the highest number of applicants. Nearly 200 high school students enrolled on the three topics, we opened this year. At our workplace, which specializes in microbiom analysis, students can try work of both chemist, biologist and bioinformatician.
Laboratory of Anaerobic Microbiology organized a practical workshop focused on the determination of microbial diversity by analyzing NGS data in the program QIIME. Theoretical morning section focused on the "Gut-brain axis, the impact of microbiota on mental health " was followed by the practical section comprising the workshop. Example amplicon data from our sequencer were provided to the participants, who could try to analyze them themselves under our supervision.
Laboratory of Anaerobic Microbiology organized a seminar on the subject "Gut-brain axis, the impact of microbiome on mental health" within strategy AV21. The interest was enormous and far exceeded the capacity of our small library. The programe was loaded, the theoretical section with seven lectures was followed by the practical section where the participants could try the bioinformatical analysis of sequencing data on their own.
During the two-day open day, 80 students and teachers from secondarry grammer schools and high schools visited our laboratory. Several attractions were prepared for the visitors, they could try themselves methods routinely used in a biological laboratory. DNA concentration was measured on the Nano Drop, samples were loaded on the gel and gram staining of bacteria was performed. On the top of that individual sections within the lab with all their instruments were presented and lecture about microbiome was held in the library.
Females reproduce by making eggs in their ovaries. The process of making an egg involves an oocyte precursor completing two rounds of chromosome segregation, a process called meiosis
