Practical work:

You will be assigned to practical work sessions only after you have paid the registration fee and have passed the laboratory safety test. Your chosen practical work preferences will be taken into account, until the places for practical work sessions are filled. Sessions with a limited number of participants will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. You can select up to three practical work sessions from wet lab and modelling and both from computer simulation and e-learning. Please be sure to mark all practical work sessions by priority, as both wet and modelling sessions have limited number of participants, therefore it's possible that your second or third choice will be considered instead of your first one.

Laboratory safety test:

S1 - Laboratory safety

S2 - Electroporation hardware safety

Please Sign-in/Login to the education system (in the left navigation menu). Use equal e-mail address that you used it on registration form. In the education system, you will find Laboratory safety test course. On the left side of the menu click test. Solve the questionary and submit it.
