Learn from the inventors of the Tet technology – Free webinar series
The Tet technology is the most widely used method for controlling gene expression in eukaryotes.  In this webinar series we have asked some of the most knowledgeable scientists to share their experience and expertise in the Tet systems.
Professor Bujard and Dr. Gossen are the inventors of the Tet technology and have taken an active part in the continuous improvements which have led to today’s third generation of Tet technology allowing extremely tight control paired with high induction.
Dr. Kai Schönig is a former Ph.D. student of Professor Bujard who has been optimizing the usage of Tet technology for in vivo experiments throughout his career.
Finally Dr. Michael Elser, who has extensive experience in advising and trouble-shooting Tet experiments as a member of Clontech/Takara Bio Europe’s Scientific Support Team, will give his best advice to set-up Tet experiments and to give you a jump-start into the world of inducible gene expression.
