"As always, Bio-Trac not only met my expectations, but exceeded them! I was immensely impressed with the class - both the lab work and lectures!"
Assistant Professor, The Ohio State University
Gene Editing with CRISPR
"Bio-Trac courses are the sure way for one to jump start on a technique’s knowledge and applications base directly from experts and practitioners in the field."
Neil H Tan Gana
Ateneo de Manila University, Philippines
"It was my first experience with professional development workshop in the USA. It was well organized, flexible and friendly. It helped to put in order my preceding knowledge and gain more."
Staff Scientist II, Maine Medical Center Research Institute
Gene Editing with CRISPR
"By nature it was short and intense, yet it proved comprehensive and satisfying. Provided valuable hands-on lab experiences as well. Highly recommend and I look forward to other course offerings."
Uniformed Services University for the Health Sciences (USUHS)
iPSC: Reprogramming, Differentiation and Gene Editing with CRISPR
"Courses such as this are essential if scientists and technologists want to keep up with the evolving genetic engineering technologies. In three days you leave with enough training information to build upon a backbone of knowledge that you didn’t have before!"
