The intern will develop skills in cell biology (cell culture, immunofluorescence, confocal imaging) and will be trained to use advanced biophysical tools (deformable hydrogel beads, atomic force microscopy).
The selected candidate will receive training in the following areas: molecular biology, cell biology, Xenopus micro-injection and micro-surgery, fluorescent confocal microscopy, video-microscopy, numerical image analysis.
The project aims at uncovering the molecular and cellular bases for Ubx and AbdA distinct motif usage.
The master project (M2) aims at characterizing the epithelial connectivity and collective behavior of the intestinal differentiated domain in homeostatic conditions or under challenging contexts.
During the Master’s project (M1 or M2), the student will use some of the techniques used in the laboratory to quantitatively interrogate the structure-function relationship underlying interallelic interactions.
