The aim is to offer a training course of excellence for researchers and technicians working in animal transgenic field. The topics will be focused on both the basic knowledge and the latest advances in transgenic technologies. The course consists of a 1st week of lectures sessions and a 2nd week of practical sessions. In addition, a mini symposium (11-12 September) is organized in order to extend the impact of the presence of the professors to other researchers, technicians and posgraduate students. Current programs for the COURSE and MINI-SYMPOSIUM.

The second edition of the International Course on “Genetics of Laboratory Rodents” was held at the Institut Pasteur-Montevideo, Uruguay, from December 5 to 14, 2011, with the co-sponsorization of the International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT). This course was organized by Martina Crispo, DVM – Head of the Transgenic and Experimental Animal Unit – Institut Pasteur de Montevideo, Uruguay, and ISTT Member, and co-organized by Jean Jacques Panthier, PhD – Unité de Genetique Fonctionelle de la Souris – Institut Pasteur, France. The teaching team was composed by Scientists from the Institut Pasteur in Paris and Montevideo as well as other regional and international institutions, who are familiar with the topics, including several ISTT Members (Jean Jaubert, Fernando Benavides, Ignacio Anegon). Students (20 participants, coming from Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Netherlands and Uruguay) were carefully selected among a long list of candidates. Again, as in its first edition, organized in 2008, this course was a very successful event, both from the scientific and social points of view, allowing more than 30 researchers from different countries to spent together ten days for science discussion. Furthermore, all students received credits for their curricula, meaning that this course will be considered as a significant element of their MSc or PhD programs. A full scientific course report is available from the ISTT web site. The ISTT wishes to thank Martina Crispo and her team from the Institut Pasteur de Montevideo, along with the rest of organizers and teachers participating, for succesfully running the second edition of this educational initiative on Laboratory Rodents Genetics in South-America.
The International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT) is pleased to announce the co-sponsorship of the second edition of the International Course on “Genetics of Laboratory Rodents“, to be held at the Institut Pasteur de Montevideo (IPMONT), Uruguay, on 5-14 December 2011. This course is organized by Martina Crispo (IPMONT, ISTT member) and co-organized by Jean Jacques Panthier (Inst. Pasteur Paris). Following a most successful first edition in 2008, the aim of this course is to offer a training opportunity to South American research scientists and veterinarians in charge of laboratory animal facilities, in the most prominent areas of mammalian genetics (mostly mouse). This course offers an opportunity to receive an intensive training and get in touch with scientist of the region working in the same fields of interest.
