- Provide a general framework to learn the basic knowledge and know-how in phenotyping in order to answer "What's wrong with my mice"
- Understand the interest of phenotyping to characterize gene function in mouse models
- Learn about the scientific and ethical considerations in phenotyping
- Hear about the current web resources available
- Learn good practices by experimentation
The training is opened to graduate students (PhD), post-doctoral scientists, researchers, and engineers To adapt the programme for the trainees' expectations, we invite the attendees to download and fill out the survey HERE
. Please send it back to the indicated contact email before the training session.
Attendees must have a basic knowledge in mouse physiology and to be able to handle mice.
Training consists in lectures / courses in the morning and workshops in the afternoon.

Courses (In the morning)
- Phenotyping or functional analysis: cardiology, behavior, blood chemistry, imaging, metabolism, neurobiology, pathology. Evaluation of the embryonic lethality: first strategy
- Experimental design: basic notions in mutagenesis, statistics, ethics and legislation
- The large research consortia and Data banks
5 Workshops: What's wrong with my mice? (In the afternoon)
- Behavior phenotyping: first approaches (Shirpa, Rotarod and Openfield)
- Applications of echography to cardiac and embryo phenotyping
- Blood sampling demonstration
- Anatomo-pathology: the necropsy as the crucial and complementary step to the in vivo studies
- Dissection of embryos in perinatal developmental step
Interactive discussion groups (at the end)
This session consists of open-ended questions in order to allow each attendee to consider their own scientific issue.
