Upcoming Biotechnology Training Workshops

All Bio-Trac Remote Instruction Workshops are team taught by researchers in a synchronous format featuring live lecture, laboratory protocol review, laboratory demonstration, hands-on in silico laboratory sessions (when appropriate) and discussion groups.  All attendees receive electronic copies of all handouts, complete laboratory protocols, as well as additional reference material.


Gene Editing with CRISPR: This remote 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.

July 15-17, 2020 • LIVE REMOTE • Preregistration Form


Single Cell RNA-Seq: This live remote in-depth lecture, laboratory demonstration, protocol review, in silico exercises and discussion is ideal for those research and bench scientists who are interested in a comprehensive introduction to single cell RNA-Seq. The core of this workshop is composed of highlighting key aspects of NSG and RNA-seq methodologies, with subsequent introduction into the modern armamentarium of tools to conduct these experiments. Further emphasis will be placed on such important aspects as sample preparation, quality control validation and enrichment as well as extensive use of different single cell RNA-Seq data analysis tools (Seurat, Monocle, Pseudo-time Analysis, Clustering Analysis in-depth: t-SNE and Principal Component Analysis).

July 27-30, 2020 • LIVE REMOTE • Preregistration Form


R programming: 'R' is a popular statistics software program used widely in various research fields.  This live remote 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".

August 17-16, 2020 • LIVE REMOTE • Preregistration Form


Flow Cytometry: Principles, Methods & Applications: This four day live remote program is ideal for those who are looking for an in-depth 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.  Attendees will have laboratory demonstration, protocol reviews and discussion on three different flow platforms (Becton Dickinson, Miltenyi and Sony) as well as exposure to four software analysis programs.

August 24-27 • LIVE REMOTE • Preregistration Form


Advances in Epigenetics: This four-day live remote 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 demonstrations on techniques currently used in epigenetic research.

September 22-25 • LIVE REMOTE • Preregistration Form

We look forward to when we are able to conduct our hands-on workshops again and continue to serve the scientific community. In the meanwhile, please join us for lunch and stimulating conversation.
