PI Contribution This involved a visit by a postdoc to receive specific training from Prof. Kageyama's laboratory in optogenomics. The grant provided funds for this and one member of staff visited Kyoto for training.
Collaborator Contribution Professor Kageyamas lab provided training n optogenetics. This allowed the expertise to be brought back to Manchester and permitted new project planning
Impact This was a short training visit which achieved the aim of training and technology transfer. One person was trained and reagents and expertise were transferred from Kyoto to Manchester. Both laboratories work on biological timing so there was also additional benefit in shared knowledge.
