Optogenetics is a powerful technique that has been primarily applied in the field of neuroscience with spectacular success. This course will be focused specifically on the new and emerging field of non-neuronal optogenetics. The possibility to modulate signalling pathways and cell behaviour with high spatio-temporal precision offers entirely novel approaches to dissect molecular mechanisms governing morphogenesis and homeostasis from the cell to the organismal scale.
