   Hi All, we are running a one week Bioimaging course for UK students
   and researchers in plant biology and we still have one place available
   due to a cancellation.  The course is sponsored by the Gatsby
   Charitible Foundation and is free of charge.  Read the blurb below and
   if you are interested send me an email and I will send you the
   application form.
   Cheers, John.
   
                     BioImaging for the Plant Sciences
      A one week course for postgraduates and researchers in the plant
                                  sciences

   Course Organisers:
   
   
   Mark Fricker - Plant Sciences, Oxford University
   
   John Runions - Biology, Oxford Brookes University
   
   Chris Hawes - Oxford Brookes University
   
   
   Sponsored by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation this course is open to
   any UK-based Plant Scientists who have an interest in bioimaging or
   who may wish to learn techniques to enable to location of proteins by
   affinity labelling or live cell imaging. Registration fees and
   accommodation are free, with registrants paying only for the dinner on
   the final evening. The course will run in parallel with the annual
   Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) Cell Imaging Techniques Course and
   will be administered by the RMS.
   
   
   
   Course content:  The course will introduce participants to a range of
   imaging techniques including the principles of fluorescence and
   confocal microscopy, affinity labelling and fluorescent protein
   expression and will include lectures, practicals and hands on time on
   a range of confocal microscopes. The course will conclude with a
   mini-symposium on the application of modern imaging technologies in
   plant cell and molecular biology research. Guest speakers will include
   Professors Karl Oparka (Edinburgh University) and Peter Shaw (John
   Innes Centre).
   
   
   Places on the course are restricted to 15 applicants who will be
   accepted on a first come first served basis, although the organisers
   reserve the right to restrict places to one per institution depending
   on demand.  If you wish to attend the course please complete the form
   below and return to the Royal Microscopical Society.  Applications
   must be accompanied by a cheque or credit card deposit of £135. Please
   make cheques payable to: Royal Microscopical Society.
   
   
   n.b. Deposits will only be cashed on the allocation of places and will
   be refunded to you (minus £35 for the course dinner) on completion of
   the course.  All unsuccessful applications will have cheques for the
   total amount returned to them immediately.
