International FISH course
Will take place September 9 – 13, 2019 at the University of Vienna in the Division of Microbial Ecology, Austria.

This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)-based microscopy for identification, quantification, and co-localization of microorganisms and outline complementary techniques for in situ analysis. Laboratory work focuses (i) on the different basic aspects of FISH with rRNA-targeted oligonucleotide probes and (ii) on FISH analyses of the participants' own samples.

The course includes seminars on:

  • Principles of fluorescence in situ-hybridization
  • Application of FISH in microbial ecology
  • Confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM)
  • Computer-assisted image analysis
  • Probe design and evaluation
  • Advanced FISH techniques [e.g. CARD-FISH, DOPE-FISH, Clone-FISH, FISH-MAR, Raman-FISH, NanoSIMS-FISH]

It is our mission to provide theoretical advice and practical help for FISH [CARD-FISH, DOPE-FISH] with the participants' own samples.
