Edition 1: Revealing the behavior of DNA-binding proteins

Join this 1.5 day workshop where our in-house experts will teach you how to bring your own DNA-protein interactions experiments to the next level

About this class

In this class, you will learn in a small focus group about the best practices to prepare and execute your experiments. You will explore in more detail C-Trap functionalities such as the force clamp and automation scripts. You will also exchange ideas, share struggles and get help from in-house experts in unlocking the next step of your experiments. Finally, of course, you will be able to hone your C-Trap skills and learn how to troubleshoot like a pro during the hands-on sessions.

About your teacher

Loïc Chaubet completed his mechanical engineering degree at McGill University in Montréal in 2017. He then worked in a single-molecule lab during his bioengineering master’s exploring the cytoplasmic mechanical properties of the cell using optical tweezers. Prior and also during his academic years, he swam competitively and in parallel, coached swimmers from all levels and ages for over 10 years. His passion for teaching and affinity for science eventually brought him to LUMICKS where he joined in Sept. 2019 as an Application Scientist. He first spent an enormous amount of time with the C-Trap system, learning the ins and outs, performing demonstrations or conducting difficult and new experiments. His unique experience with the C-Trap and his educative approach then naturally steered him into a Customer Success Application Scientist position where he has had a pivotal role in supporting and training new and current customers for over two years.
