The course will be presented May 10-16, 2015 at Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI
Graduate students, professors and researchers interested in molecular biology are invited to register to attend a new course being offered at Michigan State University, Teaching Methods for Gamete and Embryo Molecular Biology. The course runs May 10-16 on campus in Anthony Hall.
The goal of the course is to help people learn molecular biology methods applicable to small samples. The course will focus on providing hands-on experience in new and emerging molecular techniques including mRNA isolation from oocytes and embryos, mRNA amplification, array and RNAseq transcriptomics, DNA methylation analysis and single cell genetic analysis.
This hands-on training will be supplemented by lectures and discussions about the applications of these techniques in research. Several members of MSU’s faculty will give lectures and keynote speeches throughout the course. Keith Latham, professor in the Department of Animal Science, is leading several lectures throughout the first three days of the course.
The course is being presented as part of an NIH-sponsored research resource development program. On-campus and off-campus visitors alike are encouraged to attend the course. The program is designed to appeal to everybody from graduate students to practitioners in clinical research.
The cost for the course is $2,300 and the deadline to register is April 15.
