Past Events connected with Project

Kick-off Meeting

The first meeting of project parners took place in Vienna on 14th November 2016.

The catalogue of services that will be jointly offered to corporations and academic institutions will be compiled by CEITEC Masaryk University, VBCF Research Institute of Vienna and three other partners. CEITEC MU has obtained financing for the pilot project that will enable more efficient use of the technological equipment, knowledge and experience in the field of life and material sciences from Interreg AT-CZ, the programme supporting cross-border collaboration.

1st Austrian Plant Phenotyping Network (APPN) Meeting

1st Austrian Plant Phenotyping Network (APPN) Meeting took place on March 10th 2017 at the Vienna Biocenter, IMP Lecture Hall. More infromation is HERE and meeting programme is HERE (PDF).




The 1st Austrian Workshop on Ultrashort Echo Time Imaging 

The 1st Austrian Workshop on Ultrashort Echo Time (UTE) Imaging took place on March 2nd, 2017 at the Vienna Biocenter, IMP Lecture Hall. Please save the date!

The workshop initiative aims to unite the Austrian and Czech imaging community and focus on problems and solutions associated with high field imaging and ultra short echo time imaging.



1st Plant Sciences Core Facility Meeting  

The 1st Plant Sciences Core Facility Meeting took place on April 11th 2017 at the CEITEC. It was the first opportunity to introduce this newly established CEITEC Core Facility to the potential users. Close cooperation in the field of the plant grow and phenotyping between CEITEC and VBCF has been officially started by this event.




CEITEC Nano Open day for academic users – 28th March 2017

We invite you to CEITEC Nano Open day for new academic users. Within the open day we will explain how to get an access to the infrastructure, demonstrate its equipment and explain available services for nonlocal users.




RNA-Seq Hands-on Workshop

Hands-on workshop in RNA Seq took place on May 10 – 11th 2017 at the CEITEC Genomics Core Facility. Atendees of this workshop had the opportunity to hear about Sample Quality Control , mRNA Library Preparation and Quality Control and also about Sequencing data Quality Control.

Poster in PDF is HERE.




Best Practices for Behavioural Screening and Metabolic Measurements on Rodents

One of the first outcomes of joint collaboration Preclinical Phenotyping Core Facility – pcPHENO from Vienna Biocenter Core Facilities (VBCF, Austria) and Animal Center – AC (from FNUSA-ICRC, Czech Republic) under the RIAT-CZ project (called “Creating synergies between research infrastructures to stimulate innovation in the cross-border region”) took place on May 23th 2017 in FNUSA-ICRC, Brno.

Multispectral 3D Plant Imaging Workshop

For the workshop, PHENOSPEX visited the VBCF with their new PlantEye F500 device and performed multispectral 3D scans of the participants’ samples.

The plants were grown at the VBCF PlantS Facility and scanned one day before the workshop. (seeds were provided by the participants in advance). Hands-on data analysis as well as  was a follow-up discussion of derived results was performed during the workshop and on the second day at individual meetings.

“PlantEye F500 is a 3D laser scanner combined with multispectral information. It generates 3D point clouds of plants in high resolution and combines it on the fly with a 4-channel multispectral camera in the range of 400-900nm. This unique sensor fusion concept delivers spectral information for each data point and automatically computes a diverse set of validated morphological plant parameters.”


Workshop Applied Biostatistics and Data Analysis in Clinical Research

Two external experts Ana Drozdowskyj (Director of Biostatistics at Pivotal, a software producer located in the USA) and Witold Bauer (Bioinformatician at the University in Bialystok, Poland) were invited to give talks on the ways and possibilities of exploitation of data in clinical research.
