Practicum on In Vitro Cell Biology Workshop
October 9-12, 2001.

ATCC staff will be teaching an intensive course on cells in culture,
featuring lectures and demonstrations. Some hands-on activities will be
included but emphasis is on visual and verbal exposure to the
methodologies. 

An introduction to primary cell culture will cover the following: 

    Examples for differentiated populations 
    Media and substrates 
    Immortalization 
    Cell lines and hybridomas 
    Cryopreservation 

An in-depth look at quality control will include information on
microbial and viral testing as well as isoenzymology, flow cytometric
analyses, and STR fingerprinting for
identification of cell types and function. 

More advanced methodologies and reviews will include: 

    Growth factors 
    Cell cycling/signaling 
    Stem cells 
    Nuclear transplantation 

Participating ATCC scientific staff include Robert J. Hay, David Barnes,
