Practical information

Targeted toStudents and research professionals interested in practical and theoretical aspects of SELEX, from sample preparation to data analysis

“During the course I got basic knowledge about Aptamers. I liked the distribution of blocks between the theoretical morning and the practical afternoon in the laboratories. The personal approach of the lecturer, and making of new social connections is also excellent.” -Vojtch Havlek (Participant 2018 Edition)

The AptaSel course gave me more insight into the aptamers World. The course was very informative, interactive and educative. I really enjoyed every bit of it” – D.R. Martin (Participant 2019 Edition)

“The Aptasel is an extremely well-organized and comprehensive course that combining theory and practice provides all the basic knowledge to perform?aptamer selection independently. During the course I had the opportunity to refresh my previous knowledge of several biochemistry techniques and put them into practice for SELEX. Thanks to the limited number of participants and, above all, the knowledgeable and kind teachers there is plenty of time to ask questions and doubts. I highly recommend this course to everyone interested in or already working with aptamers.”? – Claudio Parolo (Participant 2019 Edition)
