Upcoming Biotechnology Training Workshops


All Bio-Trac Workshops are team taught by active researchers, and include hands-on laboratory and discussion groups.  All attendees receive electronic copies of all handouts, complete laboratory protocols, as well as additional reference material. Attendee Guidelines for In Person Workshops

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. laboratory introduction to CRISPR toolkit.  Taught by active researchers, this workshop features several cutting-edge presentations delivered by experts in the CRISPR/Cas9 field along with an intensive schedule of laboratory demonstration, protocol reviews and discussion. 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.

June 26-28, 2024 • Preregistration Form

RNA-Seq: Principles, Methods & Computational Analysis: This 5-day workshop combines a unique mix of hands-on wet bench and computational laboratory experiences with a series of lectures spanning an introduction to the concepts of RNA sequencing and the analysis of the data generated to the applications of these approaches to understand critical biological and/or biomedical processes and problems. By the end of the program, attendees will have had hands-on experience with RNA sample preparation and differences in sample integrity, a deep understanding of RNA library creation and optimization, and processing of RNA sequences from raw fastq to differential expression with the most current software using cloud computing to analyze real-world datasets from brain samples and knock-out cell lines.

July 22-26, 2024 • Preregistration Form

Flow Cytometry: Principles, Methods and 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 26-29, 2024 • Preregistration Form

R for Research Scientists: 'R' is a popular statistics software program used widely in various research fields.  This two day lecture and hands-on computer based laboratory workshop is designed to introduce bench scientists to R programming, utilizing the different tools available for scientific data analysis.  Hands-on topics will include Data Types; Import/Export Data; "Manipulation of Tabular Data", "Basic Statistics", and "Visualization using R".

Sept 10-11, 2024 • Preregistration Form

3-D Cell Culturing: During this 3-D cell culturing workshop the researcher will learn how to successfully culture primary cells, cancer cells, and epithelial cells in a 3-D format using 3-D cell culture matrices, such as Collagen I.  Emphasis will be placed on setting up primary human hepatocyte spheroid and high-throughput gut-epithelium-on-a-chip cultures, visualizing their formation and growth, and performing a broad range of downstream assays.  Examples of applications in toxicology and drug efficacy will be explored.

October 16-18, 2024 • Preregistration Form

Spatial Transcriptomics Workshop: From Sample Preparation to Data Analysis: This one-day workshop is designed for research scientists who are new spatial users. This lecture and hands-on in silico laboratory workshop will provide foundational information to succeed when starting experiments; from sample preparation to data analysis, as well as provide familiarity with available assays, analysis tools, and how to work with your Single Cell or Bioinformatics core to get the desired results.
