Hands-On Biotechnology Training Workshops for Research Scientists

Advances in EpigeneticsThis four-day workshop is designed for researchers interested in the advances being made in the field of epigenetics. Team taught by active researchers, presentations will focus on the current state of histone modifications, DNA methylation and hydroxymethlation as well as wet lab training on techniques currently used in epigenetic research.

July 11-14, 2017 • Germantown, MD • Preregistration Form

Gene Editing iPSCs with CRISPR / Cas9 :This rigorous three day program is ideal for basic research and translational biology scientists who are looking for a balanced theoretical vs. hands-on introduction to gene editing iPSCs using CRISPR/Cas9. In this workshop, participants will be able to design CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing tools, deliver gene-editing tools into human iPSCs, and detect gene-editing events by PCR/ Surveyor Assay.

July 17-19 • Germantown, MD • Preregistration Form

Introduction to Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)This in depth lecture and hands-on computer based laboratory workshop is ideal for those bench and research scientists who have little or no bioinformatics background and are seeking a comprehensive workshop on the bioinformatics analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data, particularly DNA-seq, RNA-seq, and ChIP-seq.

July 19-21, 2017 • Bethesda, MD • Preregistration Form

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and MetagenomicsThis two day hands-on workshop focuses on the microbiome, its role in human health and disease as well as its important role in research. Using metagenomics and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology, approaches in advancing the study of the microbiome will be discussed.

August 8-9, 2017 • Germantown, MD • Preregistration Form

Flow Cytometry: Principles, Methods & Applications :This four day program is ideal for those who are looking for an in-depth, hands-on introduction to Flow Cytometry.  The instructors will focus on a broad spectrum of flow cytometric topics, discuss examples from various research applications, provide technical protocols for flow cytometric sample preparation, as well as data analysis, trouble shooting and experimental design.

August 22-25, 2017 • Germantown, MD • Preregistration Form

Rigor and Reproducibility: Addressing Cell Line Authentication, Antibody Validation and MycoplasmaThis hands-on workshop will address methods and practices to ensure reproducibility and good cell culture practice (GCCP). Benefits also will extend to satisfy the new NIH grant requirements as well as those of publication outlets..

October 18-20, 2017 • Germantown, MD • Preregistration Form

Gene Editing with CRISPR: This rigorous three day program is ideal for basic research and translational biology scientists who are looking for a balanced theoretical vs. hands-on introduction to CRISPR toolkit. This program will focus on CRISPR principles, strategies for successful project design, available expertise and resources, as well as a wealth of CRISPR technology diverse applications.

November 15-17, 2017 • Germantown, MD • Preregistration Form

Command Line and R for Research Scientists: This one day lecture and hands-on computer based laboratory workshop is designed to introduce bench scientists to command-line and R programing.
